Synchrony achieves the highest score for the corporate equality index six years in a row
“As the events of 2020 made clear, growing and sustaining a culture in which everyone feels they belong, and which rests on a foundation of passion for diverse perspectives, requires effort, energy and continuous time – and this is the work we are committed to doing every day at Synchrony, “said Michael matthews, Head of Diversity and Corporate Responsibility. “We are delighted to receive recognition for our continued efforts to ensure we remain a leader in LGBTQ equality in the workplace.”
Synchronization cultivates an environment of diversity and inclusion through its eight diversity networks, with the participation of more than 10,000 employees who work collectively in these resource groups to foster the retention, development and growth of diverse talent across the company. The mission of the company’s LGBT + network is to attract and develop individuals by fostering an environment where they can excel, be their authenticity, and serve as advocates in the communities and markets we serve.
Synchrony also recognizes and celebrates the diversity of our organization through programs, networking and an annual Diversity Symposium. Last year, the Diversity Symposium was a three-day virtual experience where employees focused on what it takes to drive change and make a difference, including thought-provoking guest speakers who represented the perspectives of our diverse workforce.
“From the hitherto unimaginable impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, to a long-standing account of racial injustice, 2020 has been an unprecedented year. Yet many businesses across the country have stepped up and continued. to prioritize and defend LGBTQ equality, “said Alphonso david, President of the Human Rights Campaign. “This year has shown us that tools like the IEC are essential for increasing equity and inclusion in the workplace, but also that companies need to bring these policies and practices to life in real and tangible ways. Thank you to companies who understand protecting their LGBTQ employees and consumers from discrimination is not only the right thing to do, but the best business decision. ”
As part of IEC 2021, Synchrony was assessed on its LGBTQ-related policies and practices, including non-discriminatory protections in the workplace, equitable benefits for LGBTQ workers and their families, efforts and practices to support an inclusive culture and corporate social responsibility. Synchrony’s commitment and policies meet all IEC criteria.
