EA and Microsoft Named “Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality”

Both publishers received top marks from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.

Posted By | On 16th, Nov. 2012


Who says the gaming industry can’t be progressive? While it’s rather ironic that this is an industry that still lags behind treating men and women equally, it’s good to see some publishers like EA and Microsoft are ahead of the curb. Both were recently awarded 100 percent score rankings in the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2013 Corporate Equality Index which is the “national benchmarking tool on corporate policies and practices related to LGBT employees”. The full report can be viewed here.

EA’s chief talent officer Gabrielle Toledano is “very pleased that EA has scored a 100 per cent rating and been recognized by the Human Rights Campaign in a year where the company has taken significant steps to remain inclusive.

“EA has made changes to our medical benefits, been involved in LGBT events in our community and taken a public stance against the Defense of Marriage Act. EA champions diversity with a work environment where everyone feels welcome and can be themselves.”

We’d make a joke about this resulting in “inclusiveness” in Mass Effect 4 and Dragon Age 3 but seriously, at this point? Make up your own.
