The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) has ranked MPC a “Best Place to Work” for LGBTQ+ equality for the third consecutive year. For 2022, MPC scored 100% on the HRC’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI) survey, which is the highest possible score. Companies earning the top score are recognized for their efforts to create inclusive workplaces for LGBTQ+ individuals.

The CEI is a national benchmarking survey and report that defines supportive LGBTQ+-related policies and practices for employers and measures implementation among the country’s largest businesses. The results of the 2022 CEI highlight that a growing number of U.S.-based companies are adopting LGBTQ+-friendly workplace policies in the U.S. and helping to advance LGBTQ+ inclusion in their workplaces abroad. MPC met all CEI criteria, earning the company a perfect score.

“MPC is proud to have once again earned a perfect score on the CEI and a place on the ‘Best Place to Work’ list for LGBTQ+ equality,” said Germaine Hunter, MPC Vice President, Talent Acquisition and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. “We work very hard to ensure that our employees are treated fairly and equitably in the workplace, and this rating demonstrates our commitment to delivering benefits, policies and practices that support our LGBTQ+ employees and our employees with LGBTQ+ family members.”

MPC supports six employee network groups across the company, including the PRIDE employee network, which promotes awareness and education about the LGBTQ+ community and creates a sense of community and belonging for network members.

In 2021, the network planned several events to build awareness, such as an employee panel focused on the importance of LGBTQ+ allies during Pride Month and a Spirit Day celebration encouraging employees to wear purple to stand up against LGBTQ+ bullying.

This year, HRC is celebrating 20 years of making an impact in the workplace and advancing inclusion. Read HRC’s full 2022 CEI report.
