The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) has ranked Findlay’s Marathon Petroleum a “Best Place to Work” for LGBTQ+ equality for the third straight year.
Marathon this year scored 100 percent on the HRC’s Corporate Equality Index survey, which is the highest possible score.
Companies earning the top score are recognized for their efforts to create inclusive workplaces for LGBTQ+ individuals.
“MPC is proud to have once again earned a perfect score on the CEI and a place on the ‘Best Place to Work’ list for LGBTQ+ equality,” said Germaine Hunter, MPC Vice President, Talent Acquisition and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.
“We work very hard to ensure that our employees are treated fairly and equitably in the workplace, and this rating demonstrates our commitment to delivering benefits, policies and practices that support our LGBTQ+ employees and our employees with LGBTQ+ family members.”
Marathon supports six employee network groups across the company, including the PRIDE employee network, which promotes awareness and education about the LGBTQ+ community and creates a sense of community and belonging for network members.
In 2021, the network planned several events to build awareness, such as an employee panel focused on the importance of LGBTQ+ allies during Pride Month and a Spirit Day celebration encouraging employees to wear purple to stand up against LGBTQ+ bullying.
The Human Rights Campaign this year is celebrating 20 years of making an impact in the workplace and advancing inclusion.
