Moody's Corporation obtained a flawless score on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation's 2022 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) for the eleventh consecutive year. The CEI is a national benchmarking survey and report on LGBTQ+ workplace equality.

“Moody’s takes great pride in our inclusion in the Corporate Equality Index for over a decade, which reflects our strong record and continued leadership in implementing workplace practices that help our LGBTQ+ colleagues be their authentic selves,”

said DK Bartley, Chief Diversity Officer at Moody’s.

“Supporting diversity, equity and inclusion at Moody’s is a business imperative, and our actions will continue to be guided by our values.”

The CEI rates companies based on detailed criteria falling under four central pillars: Non-discrimination policies across business entities, equitable benefits for LGBTQ+ workers and their families, support of an inclusive culture, and corporate social responsibility.

Moody’s continues to expand its policies, programs, and events geared toward LGBTQ+ inclusion and equality, and in 2021 published an inaugural Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Report and a Human Rights Statement. Moody’s also continues to partner with the Hetrick-Martin Institute on the Queer Coders Program, which helps LGBTQ+ youth in the U.S. develop technical skills around coding.
