Discover Recognized as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality For Seventh Consecutive Year

RIVERWOODS, Ill. , February 05 /Businesswire/ - For the seventh year in a row, Discover Financial Services has been recognized as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality and earned a perfect 100 score from the Human Rights Campaign’s Annual Corporate Equality Index (CEI).

CEI is a national benchmarking survey and report that measures corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality and inclusion. The report provides an in-depth analysis and ratings of U.S. employers, their policies and practices pertinent to LGBTQ employees.

With over 1,000 companies analyzed by the index, Discover earned a perfect 100 score alongside almost 700 other companies.

“Our company is made stronger by having a diverse workforce and an inclusive culture,” said Roger Hochschild, CEO and president of Discover. “We pride ourselves on drawing employees from different backgrounds and we strive to create an environment where every Discover employee feels a sense of belonging.”

Discover has ten Employee Resource Groups, which provides tools and resources to help employees connect, build communities at work, and foster an inclusive environment. PRIDE is the employee resource group supporting Discover’s LGBTQ community. In recent years, the group helped lead marketing efforts behind Discover’s rainbow card design, known as the Discover it Pride Card. These efforts have led to an almost 5% increase in Pride Cards issued in 2019 as compared to 2018.
