Dear Friends, More than ever, consumers are sending a message to businesses that they are watching. They are watching to see if the businesses they patronize understand and honor issues important to them, giving buying power to issues ranging from LGBT inclusiveness to environmental protection. Corporate social responsibility has become an imperative for a successful business. With Buying for Workplace Equality, we hope to harness that power by providing you with the most accurate review of a business’s workplace policies toward LGBT employees. From offering benefits to domestic partners to extending workplace protections to transgender workers, there is a tidal wave of business support for LGBT workplace inclusion. This year’s guide includes results from the 2011 Corporate Equality Index, which features 337 businesses — a record number — that scored a perfect 100 percent. Whether you are buying a cup of coffee or renovating your home, by supporting businesses that support workplace equality you send a powerful message that LGBT inclusion is good for the bottom line. We hope that you will use this guide as one component when determining if a business’s social practices make it worthy of your dollars. The Buying for Workplace Equality guide is also available in web and mobile versions. For more information, visit www.hrc.org/buyersguide.

Sincerely, Joe Solmonese President, Human Rights Campaign

QUESTIONS ANSWERS
2

Where do the scores in this guide come from?

The information in this guide comes from the 2011 Corporate Equality Index, the Human Rights Campaign’s annual report card on corporate America’s treatment of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees. Businesses are rated on a scale from 0 to 100, based on whether or not they have policies that support LGBT employees. These include anti-discrimination protections, domestic partner benefits, diversity training and transgender-inclusive benefits. This year we provided an unofficial score to businesses that have not, after repeated attempts, responded to the survey. An unofficial score is reflective of the information that HRC has been able to collect without help or input from a business. The Human Rights Campaign researches policies at more than 1,800 companies (including the Fortune 1000 and American Lawyer 200). However, we do not provide a business with an official score until we have collected and verified all the information we need. In all, we rated 615 companies in the 2011 CEI. Any business with 500 or more U.S. employees can be rated. If you don’t see a company listed, contact the Human Rights Campaign with any information you have about its policies on LGBT issues. Or, contact and motivate businesses to participate by letting them know that you make purchasing decisions based on how it scored in this guide.

How are the scores calculated?
