Xylem has earned a 100% rating on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2021 Corporate Equality Index, a US benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality.
Xylem is one of 767 US businesses that earned top marks this year.
“At Xylem, our values of respect, responsibility, integrity, and creativity provide the foundation for our company and go to the heart of how we conduct ourselves each day,” said Claudia Toussaint, Xylem’s chief sustainability officer and general counsel. “We view diversity, equity and inclusion as powerful enablers in our mission to solve water, fostering the vibrant exchange of ideas that fuels our culture of innovation and unites our global team.”
The Corporate Equality Index rates companies under four central pillars:
