    Kodak again scores 100 percent in HRC’s Corporate Equality Index


    Kodak is one of 366 companies to earn a 100-percent ranking on the Human Rights Campaign’s 2015 Corporate Equality Index (CEI). The recognition is a key annual ranking of business’ commitment to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) workplace policies and practices, and Kodak has earned the top recognition in each of the 13 years HRC has compiled the Index.  Last year, 304 companies received the top ranking.  

    "Kodak was one of 13 companies to achieve a perfect score on the first Corporate Equality Index, and we are proud to remain among the growing number of corporations receiving that score each year," said Kim VanGelder, Kodak's Chief Information Officer and Corporate Champion for the LGBT constituency.   

    Kodak's Consumer and Film Division President and Chief Marketing Officer Steven Overman, who joined the company in October, noted: "Any company is stronger when it leverages the unique patchwork of backgrounds and perspectives in its workforce.  As a gay man, it is important to me that the company I represent is committed to ensuring all employees are accepted as individuals."   

    To achieve a perfect score and the distinction of "Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality," companies must have fully inclusive equal employment opportunity policies, provide equal employment benefits, demonstrate organizational LGBT competency, evidence their commitment to equality publicly, and exercise responsible citizenship.   

    Kodak’s support of LGBT employees and external audiences includes participation in workplace advocacy programs that call attention to issues they find important. The company also hosts the Lambda Network at Kodak, an employee network that helps educate others on topics such as discrimination, bullying, and workplace concerns.
