CIT Named a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality

CIT received a score of 100% on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2020 Corporate Equality Index, a benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality. As part of the recognition, CIT has also been designated a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.

“CIT is committed to fostering an inclusive workplace for our employees, where different perspectives are respected, and the highest ethical standards are upheld,” said CIT Chief Human Resources Officer Jim Duffy. “We’re thrilled to receive this recognition and are proud to join the ranks of other leading U.S. businesses that also earned top marks this year.”

The results of this year’s CEI showcase how 1059 U.S.-based companies are promoting LGBTQ-friendly workplace policies in the U.S. and helping advance the cause of LGBTQ inclusion in workplaces abroad. The CEI rates companies on detailed criteria based on five categories: non-discrimination policies, employment benefits, demonstrated organizational competency and accountability around LGBTQ diversity and inclusion, public commitment to LGBTQ equality, and responsible citizenship.

In 2019, CIT created the Be You diversity and inclusion program to encourage engagement and build a workplace where employees can bring their best selves to work. The program includes an LGBTQ Employee Resource Group dedicated to fostering internal networking, development and community involvement.
