Best Buy has joined the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and more than 160 leading U.S. businesses to support the Equality Act, federal legislation that would add non-discrimination protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people to U.S. civil rights laws.
Support for this legislation demonstrates our commitment to non-discrimination and determination to foster a diverse and inclusive environment for employees and customers. And, consistent with Best Buy’s value to “unleash the power of our people,” we believe that people thrive when they are treated with fairness and respect and can be themselves.
Best Buy scored a perfect 100 on HRC’s 2018 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a nationally recognized annual benchmark of LGBTQ inclusion in the workplace, and was recognized on HRC’s Best Places to Work for LGBTQ equality for the 13th year.
