Corporate Equality Index: What Happened to the 2007 Report?

In a departure from previous reports by the HRC Foundation, the Corporate Equality Index report released in September 2007 is referred to as the "Corporate Equality Index 2008" report, rather than "Corporate Equality Index 2007."

This change was motivated by the fact that the HRC Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index report and Best Places to Work awards, given to those employers that achieve a perfect rating, are generally released toward the end of the calendar year. By naming the report that came out in September 2007 the "Corporate Equality Index 2008" report, we feel the report more accurately reflects the year in which its results will be communicated to employees, job applicants and consumers.

Subsequent reports will be named similarly, with the report released in September 2008 named "Corporate Equality Index 2009."
