TransUnion is proud to stand beside more than 300 other major American corporations as a member of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC)’s Business Coalition for the Equality Act in support of the Equality Act. The Equality Act would guarantee equal protections for LGBTQ people under existing civil rights laws in the United States, and it is necessary to ensuring that America lives up to the promise of one of its core ideals: liberty and justice for all.
While we have witnessed great strides of progress for LGBTQ equality in recent years, there is still much work to be done. We applaud the House for voting to pass the Equality Act and advancing the legislation to the Senate. The Senate currently has the ability to provide millions of Americans with the promise of equal protection under the law and we encourage all Senators to vote to pass the Equality Act.
In January, TransUnion announced that it had earned a perfect score of 100 in the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation’s 2021 Corporate Equality Index, the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality. Additionally, TransUnion is proud to be designated as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality. At TransUnion, we understand our diversity is a core component of our strength. This goes for not only our company but also for the country.
We are eager to see Congress put legal protections in place for LGBTQ employees, customers, and individuals across the United States and lawmakers have the power to do so with a vote for the Equality Act. Our nation is a land of opportunity, and we all benefit from ensuring that equal opportunity is extended to all Americans.
