How to Use

Each business/brand is assigned one of three colors based on its score in our report: green, yellow or red. The parent company is listed first in each entry, and is linked to its respective page on our online Corporate Equality Index. The parent company's brand-name products, if any, are listed underneath, and its corresponding CEI score is listed on the right. Examples of these entries are below.

Green (80-100): Businesses/brands that receive our highest workplace equality scores.

Yellow (46-79): Businesses/brands that have taken steps toward a fair-minded workplace and receive a moderate workplace equality score.

Red (0-45): Businesses/brands that have more work to do in furthering equality. If possible, make the choice to support a more fair-minded company.
