·3 min read

NEW YORK, January 27, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ziff Davis, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZD), received a perfect score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2022 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality. The Company earned its top score in its first time participating in the Index, which named it one of the "Best Places to Work for LGBTQ+ Employees."

"Workplace equality for our colleagues who identify as 2SLGBTQIA+ is essential to our goal of maintaining a workplace where all employees can thrive," said Vivek Shah, Chief Executive Officer of Ziff Davis. "We’re grateful to the leaders and members of our PRISM Employee Resource Group, as they have been an incredible source of guidance and perspective in our continuing development of benefits, policies and programs that serve the needs of our 2SLGBTQIA+ employees and foster an inclusive, supportive workplace for us all."

"When the Human Rights Campaign Foundation created the Corporate Equality Index 20 years ago, we dreamed that LGBTQ+ workers—from the factory floor to corporate headquarters, in big cities and small towns—could have access to the policies and benefits needed to thrive and live life authentically," said Jay Brown, Human Rights Campaign Senior Vice President of Programs, Research and Training. "Congratulations to Ziff Davis for achieving the title of ‘Best Places to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality’ and working to advance inclusion in the workplace."

Ziff Davis’ efforts in satisfying all of CEI’s criteria earned a 100 percent ranking and the designation as one of the Best Places to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality. The CEI rates companies on detailed criteria falling under four central pillars:

  • Non-discrimination policies across business entities;

  • Equitable benefits for LGBTQ+ workers and their families;

  • Supporting an inclusive culture; and,

  • Corporate social responsibility.
