Ameren Receives Top Recognition as an LGBTQ+ Equality Workplace

  • Seventh Consecutive Year Ameren Scores 100% On the Corporate Equality Index

Ameren Corporation is proud to announce that it has once again received a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index, the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality.

“At Ameren, we’re fostering a culture of diverse co-workers who bring a variety of perspectives that help us serve our customers better – and we work hard to provide the support that employees need to be successful in their careers,” said Sharon Harvey Davis, vice president of diversity, equity and inclusion and chief diversity officer for Ameren. “That’s why we’ve been intentional about providing meaningful benefits and services that give all our employees, including those who identify as LGBTQ+, the opportunity to grow at Ameren and provide for their families.”

Ameren’s Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Employees & Allies Network (GLEAN) employee resource group has been instrumental in ensuring that co-workers who identify as LGBTQ+ have a safe place to connect with one another and help other co-workers learn how to be allies. The company also provides equitable health benefits for transgender employees and same-sex partners.

“Being able to be who you are wherever you are is not to be taken for granted,” stated Harvey Davis. “We appreciate the recognition for the work Ameren has done and our commitment to continue to build a culture that allows our co-workers to bring their whole selves to work.”

The Corporate Equality Index rates workplaces on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer equality based on four criteria: nondiscrimination policies, equitable benefits for LGBTQ+ workers and their families, supporting an inclusive culture, and corporate social responsibility. More than 1,200 of the nation’s largest businesses participated in the survey.

“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. “We are proud that the Corporate Equality Index paved the way to that reality for countless LGBTQ+ workers in America and abroad. But there is still more to do, which is why we are raising the bar yet again to create more equitable workplaces and a better tomorrow for LGBTQ+ workers everywhere.”
