FMC Corporation (NYSE: FMC) announced today that it received a perfect score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation's 2022 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the nation's foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality. 

FMC receives perfect score in HRC's 2022 Corporate Equality Index

"By prioritizing and embracing the benefits of diversity across our company, FMC has fostered an environment for our employees to grow and contribute to their fullest potential," said Mark Douglas, president and chief executive officer at FMC. "Efforts to strengthen our workforce in these ways have contributed to our company's ability to meet the demands and challenges these past few years have presented."

FMC supports LGBTQ+ employees through SPECTRUM, an FMC employee resource group (ERG) for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer employees and their allies. It focuses on increasing the visibility of LGBTQ+ issues within the company through education and awareness initiatives. SPECTRUM is implemented regionally through Regional Inclusion Councils to drive efforts relative to the local needs and challenges of LGBTQ+ employees and their communities.

"We're very proud to receive a perfect score for the third year in a row," said ZsaNell Smith, director of global diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) at FMC. "This recognition reflects the continued organizational support for DEI, but also the work being done to drive changes across the company to actively demonstrate our commitment to cultivate a workplace culture that allows employees to really see themselves and be themselves at FMC."

SPECTRUM is one of six employee resource groups at FMC, which also include The Bridge, a multicultural ERG; Women's Initiative Network (WIN); i-Gen, an intergenerational ERG; Valuing Individuals with Visible and Invisible Disabilities (VIVID); and HONOR, a veterans group open to all employees to promote, raise awareness and support veterans within FMC and our local communities.

"A core value at FMC is respect for people," said Karen Totland, vice president and chief sustainability officer for FMC. "Recognition like this confirms the importance of living that value in all that we do, and it reaffirms the impact of our work to achieve the right balance of diversity, equity and inclusion across our entire global organization."

The CEI rates companies on detailed criteria falling under four central pillars:

  • Non-discrimination policies across business entities;
  • Equitable benefits for LGBTQ+ workers and their families;
  • Supporting an inclusive culture; and,
  • Corporate social responsibility

Companies rated in the CEI include Fortune magazine's 500 largest publicly traded businesses, American Lawyer magazine's top 200 revenue-grossing law firms (AmLaw 200), and hundreds of publicly and privately held mid- to large-sized businesses.

The full CEI report is available online at www.hrc.org/cei.
