Softchoice Recognized by Human Rights Campaign’s 2020 Corporate Equality Index

Culture | Posted on January 20, 2020 by Karen Scott

Our Commitment  

At Softchoice, we are committed to providing an engaging and inclusive environment where every employee can bring their whole self to work. Softchoice believes in creating an environment where all employees – regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, race, religion or cultural background – feel accepted and supported to succeed. And I recognize that this is a journey, not a race, and we’re not at our destination yet. There is still important work to be done. But I am excited with the results we have achieved so far that is fueling us to do more.      

Today, we are especially proud to participate in the Human Rights Campaign’s 2020 Corporate Equality IndexIn this report, Softchoice was recognized for our LGBTQIA+ inclusive policies and practices, including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits and transgender-inclusive health care benefits.   

I am thrilled to partner with our orangePRIDE Employee Resource Group (ERG) on our diversity and inclusion journey. orangePRIDE helps our leadership team identify and remove barriers to ensure LGBTQIA+ employees have a path to success and advises Softchoice on how to attract and retain top talent from the LGBTQIA+ community. 

LGBTQIA+ Support at Softchoice 

  • We offer equal benefits to same and different-sex spouses and domestic partners of benefits-eligible employees.  
  • We provide coverage for transgender health care services, including transition-related treatment, surgery, hormone therapy and counseling support for U.S. employees – and our transgender benefits are fully aligned with the World Professional for Transgender Health Standards of Care (WPATH SOC).  
  • We have an amazing employee resource group – orangePRIDE  that advocates for the LGBTQIA+ community and supports our employees across North America. 
  • In partnership with the Softchoice Cares Board, we do not offer philanthropic support to any organization with a policy of discrimination against the LGBTQIA+ community or any other marginalized group.

Through benchmarking reports like the Corporate Equality Index and direct feedback from Softchoice employees, we will continue to build a welcoming and inclusive culture for all 

Karen Scott is Sr. Vice President – People & Growth at Softchoice.
