HRC's Corporate Equality Index 2008

The annual Corporate Equality Index (CEI) from the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) is now available for download. Read it here.

The results? 195 companies received a perfect score -- a 41% increase from 2007. 15 of these companies appeared in the CEI for the first time.

Wal-mart slipped from 65% last year to 40% in 2008. Why? In response to conservative critics, Wal-mart no longer supports GLBT organizations. Their new stance is to not to "support or oppose highly controversial issues." Read more about Wal-mart's GLBT policies here.

The worst:

  • Meijer - 0%
  • Exxon Mobil - 0%
  • Perot Systems Corp - 0%
