New York, NY, March 29, 2019 – MUFG announced that it has achieved a perfect score on the 2019 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the nation’s premier benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation. MUFG has consistently achieved high marks on the CEI, earning a perfect score of 100 for the sixth consecutive year. 

MUFG’s legacy as a diverse, inclusive business is reflected in its workforce. More than 65 percent of the bank’s employees are women or people of color, and the bank’s corporate board is one of the most inclusive in American banking, as the majority of board members are women and/or people of color. This distinction from HRC comes on the heels of MUFG’s recognition as a member of Bloomberg’s Inaugural Gender-Equality Index in 2018.

MUFG’s dedication to LGBTQ equality stems from the company’s corporate values, which embrace mentoring, hiring and retaining top talent from all backgrounds. The bank consistently supports scholarships for diverse, underserved populations, including LGBTQ youth. In 2018, the bank worked alongside a local non-profit to begin construction of North Park Seniors, San Diego’s first LGBTQ-Affirming affordable housing development for people over the age of 55. The residential facility is now open and is comprised of 75 apartment units.
