PVH Corp. Receives Score of 100% in Human
Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index
January 22, 2020
The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation announces PVH Corp. scored 100 percent in the 2020 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) for the third year in a row. CEI is a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate practices related to workplace equality, which is administered by the HRC Foundation.
PVH joined 572 major U.S. and global companies that also earned top marks this year and the designation of “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality.” The 2020 CEI report evaluated each company on their LGBTQ+-related policies and practices, including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs and public engagement with the LGBTQ community.
PVH will receive the Corporate Equality Award at the 19th Annual HRC Greater New York Gala on February 1 in New York City. The event’s other honorees are supermodel, philanthropist and businesswoman Naomi Campbell, who will be honored with HRC’s Global Advocacy Award, and award-winning actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth who will be honored with the Ally for Equality Award.
“We’re proud to be recognized by HRC for taking a stand on LGBTQ+ rights and we’ll continue to use our voice and collective power to work towards equality and acceptance within our workplace, our industry and the world at large,” said Manny Chirico, Chairman & CEO, PVH Corp. “At PVH, our longstanding commitment to inclusivity is embedded in our culture and the way we do business. We believe that every individual should feel empowered to be themselves and express who they are.”
PVH also has been named to FORTUNE's World’s Most Admired Companies 2020 list, moving up eight spots from last year. Additionally, Forbes magazine recently published its third annual list of The Best Employers for Diversity, and - for the third consecutive year - PVH is recognized.
