MUFG Bank Named a “Best Place to Work” for LGBTQ Equality

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG) has achieved a perfect score on the 2020 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation.

MUFG has consistently achieved high marks on the CEI, earning a perfect score of 100% for the seventh consecutive year.

The CEI produces the nation’s premier benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality and rates companies and top law firms on detailed criteria in five categories:

  • Non-discrimination policies
  • Employment benefits
  • Demonstrated organizational competency and accountability around LGBTQ diversity and inclusion
  • Public commitment to LGBTQ equality
  • Responsible citizenship

“We’re proud that our commitment to equality and inclusion is recognized by this prestigious organization and acknowledged by our peers,” said Steve Cummings, President and Chief Executive Officer for the Americas. “We strive to create a culture and environment where LGBTQ colleagues are engaged, empowered, and feel valued.”

“The impact of the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index over its 18-year history is profound,” said Alphonso David, HRC President. “In this time, the corporate community has worked with us to adopt LGBTQ-inclusive policies, practices, and benefits, establishing the Corporate Equality Index as a primary driving force for LGBTQ workplace inclusion in America and across the globe. These companies know that protecting their LGBTQ employees and customers from discrimination is not just the right thing to do — it is also the best business decision.”

The HRC Foundation is the educational arm of America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for LGBTQ people. HRC envisions a world where LGBTQ people are embraced as full members of society at home, at work, and in every community.
