Bank Named a ‘Best Place to Work’ for LGBTQ Equality

LOS ANGELES, (February 10, 2021) – Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG) announced that it has achieved a perfect score on the 2021 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the nation’s premier benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation. This marks the eighth year that MUFG has achieved a perfect score of 100 percent on the CEI.

Data from the CEI is indicative of nearly two decades of year-over-year growth in the adoption of critical policies and practices demonstrating employers' commitment to equality. By using the CEI as a roadmap, companies can help ensure that their existing policy and benefits infrastructures are inclusive of the LGBTQ workforce and their families, resulting in greater recruitment and retention of a talented, diverse workforce. MUFG’s high score is a testament to the company’s commitment to fostering a diverse, equitable and inclusive workforce.

The HRC Foundation is the educational arm of America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for LGBTQ people. The HRC envisions a world where LGBTQ people are embraced as full members of society at home, at work, and in every community.
