Teva USA Earns Perfect Score In 2022 Corporate Equality Index
Teva Receives 100 percent on Human Rights Campaign Foundation's Annual Scorecard Assessing LGBTQ Workplace Equality
Teva USA is proud to once again receive a perfect score of 100 on the 2022 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the nation's premier 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. The top marks include the distinction of “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality.”
Teva is committed to supporting an inclusive culture and to making people feel welcomed regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation -- from policies and practices that protect and benefit LGBTQ workers to our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) which foster community, development and networking opportunities.
“This accolade is the materialization of a multitude of efforts, we are very proud of our accomplishments towards equality at work, and believe that all employees should be able to bring their full selves to work and have the same opportunities, protections and benefits regardless of their gender, sexual orientation or sexual identity.” Says Carlos Lopez, Co-Chair of the Pride Employee Resource Group and Associate Director Pricing and Contracting at Anda.
The HRC Foundation is the educational arm of the America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual transgender and queer people. HRC envisions a world where LGBTQ people are embraced as full members of society at home, at work and in every community.
Each year, HRC adds new questions and requirements to the CEI, necessitating continuous evaluation and evolution of LGBTQ policies and activities to obtain a perfect score. Teva’s achievement of this distinction reflects the diligence of multiple functions in updating and advancing Teva’s activity in support of the LGBTQ community, including policies in supplier diversity and nondiscrimination, and actions taken to recruit a more diverse workplace.
Teva was among the 842 businesses, which earned 100 percent in the 2022 CEI report, which rates companies on non-discrimination policies, employment benefits, demonstrated organizational competency and accountability around LGBTQ diversity and inclusion, public commitment to LGBTQ equality and responsible citizenship.
Janine Ting Jansen, Senior Director of Inclusion & Diversity, NA at Teva says, “This score represents the hard work of many employees & leaders who value progression of greater equality in the workplace. Teva will continue to pursue a culture where our employees can be their authentic selves and thrive.” The full report is available online at www.hrc.org/cei.
