Iron Mountain Incorporated®, the global leader in storage and information management services, today announced a ideal score of 100 on the 2020 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) for the third consecutive year. And, we help professionals navigate and advance their careers. "These companies know that protecting their LGBTQ employees and customers from discrimination is not just the right thing to do - it is also the best business decision". The survey also deducted points for several instances, such as shareholders making public comments against LGBTQ equality, or companies directing corporate charitable contributions to organizations whose primary mission includes advocacy against LGBTQ equality. Palo Alto Networks efforts in satisfying all of the CEI's criteria not only earned a 100% ranking but also the designation of a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality. "We believe all employees should feel welcome, respected and valued for who they are, and we are pleased to be recognized for our policies and programs that support equality".

The results of this year's CEI showcase how 1,059 US -based companies are not only promoting LGBTQ-friendly workplace policies in the USA, but helping advance the cause of LGBTQ inclusion in workplaces overseas.
