Huntington Ingalls Industries Rated Best Place To Work For LGBTQ Equality By Human Rights Campaign

NEWPORT NEWS, Va., Nov 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) --

Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE:HII) announced today that it received a score of 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation's 2018 Corporate Equality Index, a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) workplace equality. HII joins the ranks of 609 major U.S. businesses that also earned top marks this year.

"HII is honored to receive recognition as an LGBTQ-friendly workplace from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation," said HII President and CEO Mike Petters. "We are focused on building a workforce culture where the least-empowered person has the confidence to speak up. We want HII to be a place that fosters inclusion for every employee, regardless of their differences."

The 2018 CEI evaluated LGBTQ-related policies and practices, including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs, and public engagement with the LGBTQ community. HII's efforts in satisfying all of the CEI's criteria resulted in a 100 percent ranking and the designation as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.
