BMO Harris Bank earns top score in Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2022 Corporate Equality Index
For the fifth consecutive year, BMO Harris Bank was recognized by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation as an industry leader in LGBTQ+ workplace equality, receiving a score of 100 on the 2022 Corporate Equality Index (CEI). The index is a national benchmarking tool that measures a company’s corporate policies and practices related to workplace equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer employees.
The index rates companies based on four central pillars of criteria: Non-discrimination policies across business entities; equitable benefits for LGBTQ+ workers and their families; supporting an inclusive culture; and taking on the corporate social responsibility of promoting inclusion. BMO is listed among 1,271 U.S. based companies that promote LGBTQ+-friendly workplaces.
“BMO’s Purpose – to Boldly Grow the Good in business and life – drives everything we do, including how we build relationships with our employees,” said Tracie Morris, U.S. Chief Human Resources Officer and Chief Inclusion Officer, BMO Harris Bank. “Thank you to the Human Rights Campaign Foundation for recognizing our efforts to advance LGBTQ+ inclusion.”
The index pillars are also aligned with our Zero Barriers to Inclusion 2025 strategy, which includes a five-year goal to reach a workforce representation target of 3% LGBTQ+ employees.
This recognition follows yesterday’s announcement that BMO Financial Group was included in the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index, recognizing our commitment to equality and the advancement of women.
