MGM Resorts Internationalis pleased to announce that, for the 8th consecutive year, Human Rights Campaign has named us one of the “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality.” Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is proud to be a MGM Resorts luxury destination, and has always valued diversity and inclusion in all forms. MGM Resorts International received a perfect score of 100 on the 2019 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the nation’s premier benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality, administered by the HRC. MGM Resorts joins the ranks of over 560 major U.S. businesses that also earned top marks this year.
The Human Rights Campaign Foundation is the educational arm of America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual transgender and queer people. HRC envisions a world where LGBTQ people are embraced as full members of society at home, at work and in every community.
The 2019 CEI evaluates 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. MGM Resorts’ efforts in satisfying all of the CEI’s criteria results in a 100 percent ranking and the designation as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.
MGM Resorts has a long-standing record of support of the LGBTQ community, as a National Corporate Partner of HRC and otherwise. For example, in 2011, MGM Resorts expanded its supplier and construction diversity programs to include lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBTQ)-owned firms. Years before same-sex marriage was legalized, same-sex commitment ceremonies were performed at chapels at MGM Resorts’ properties, which continue to develop specialized marriage ceremony offerings and outreach to same-sex couples.
