Malvern, PA 

  • Siemens Healthineers receives full score of 100 on the Corporate Equality Index in the U.S.
  • Human Rights Campaign recognizes Siemens Healthineers commitment to LGBTQ+ equality in the workplace

Siemens Healthineers has again received a full score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation’s 2021 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) in the U.S. The HRC’s CEI is a national benchmarking tool that focuses on corporate policies, practices, and benefits pertinent to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer employees.

“Siemens Healthineers is extremely honored to be recognized again as a champion company that is firmly committed to LGBTQ+ equality in the workplace,” said David Pacitti, President and Head of the Americas, Siemens Healthineers. “It has been, and will remain, a key priority of ours to make all employees feel included, safe, and equal in the workplace.”

HRC’s CEI annually evaluates and rates participating companies on detailed and ever-evolving criteria falling under four crucial pillars. Criteria for 2021 included non-discrimination policies across business entities, equitable benefits for LGBTQ+ workers and their families, supporting an inclusive culture, and corporate social responsibility. Siemens Healthineers proudly joins the ranks of other major U.S. businesses that also earned top marks this year. Siemens Healthineers is committed to not only LGBTQ+ equality, but also dedicates an immense amount of effort into diversity and inclusion across the company, not just in the U.S. but internationally, as well.

“From the previously unimaginable impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, to a long overdue reckoning with racial injustice, 2020 was an unprecedented year. Yet, many businesses across the nation stepped up and continued to prioritize and champion LGBTQ+ equality,” said Alphonso David, Human Rights Campaign President. “This year has shown us that tools like the CEI are crucial in the work to increase equity and inclusion in the workplace, but also that companies must breathe life into these policies and practices in real and tangible ways. Thank you to the companies that understand protecting their LGBTQ+ employees and consumers from discrimination is not just the right thing to do—but the best business decision.”
