HARTFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Hartford has received a perfect score of 100 percent on the 2021 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation. This marks the 13th year The Hartford has received this recognition.
“We are proud of our long history of supporting and advocating for the LGBTQ community,” said Lori Rodden, chief human resources officer at The Hartford. “At The Hartford, we want employees to bring all the elements of who they are to work — their backgrounds, cultures, experiences, passions and interests. Receiving this recognition again is a testament to our continued focus on sustaining a workplace where every employee is empowered to engage and contribute to the company’s long-term success.”
The company has a long-standing commitment to engaging in LGBTQ advocacy. PRIDE, which was founded in 1996 and was the first of the company’s nine employee resource groups, champions the growth and development of its members by providing the company with a center of expertise for LGBTQ awareness, networking and business practices.

The 2021 CEI evaluates companies based on a list of detailed criteria falling under four central pillars: non-discrimination policies across business entities; equitable benefits for LGBTQ workers and their families; supporting an inclusive culture; and corporate social responsibility. The Hartford’s efforts in satisfying all of the CEI’s criteria results in a 100 percent ranking and the designation as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.
