Support for equality keeps growing as the LGBT community celebrates support this week from Pfizer, Inc., who wrote letters in support of the Missouri Nondiscrimination Act to Sen. Jolie Justus and Rep. Kevin Engler.
“In order to remain competitive in the workplace, we must create an environment that allows all our employees to be authentic, regardless of whom they are as individuals,” writes Drue Duncan, Director, Government Relations, Pfizer, Inc.
Pfizer has consistently been recognized as one of the best places to work for LGBT equality by the Corporate Equality Index, the leading U.S. survey that assesses businesses on their treatment of LGBT employees, investors and consumers, since the Index was launched in 2002. Their 2011 recognition marks the eighth consecutive year that Pfizer has achieved the highest possible rating.
Pfizer has been named to the 2013 Top 50 Companies for Diversity list compiled by Diversity, Inc. magazine; is ranked 65 out of 100 Most Ideal Employers by American MBA Students, jumping 21 spots in 1 year; and with its 15th consecutive appearance on the list, Pfizer has been inducted into the magazine’s Hall of Fame.
