Barnes & Noble, Inc. (NYSE: BKS), the world’s largest retail bookseller, today announced that it earned a perfect score of 100 percent for the twelfth consecutive year on the 2019 Corporate Equality Index (CEI). The CEI is a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation. Barnes & Noble is one of 560 major U.S. businesses that also received top marks this year.

“We are honored to once again receive a perfect score on the Corporate Equality Index from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation,” said Michelle Smith, Vice President, Human Resources at Barnes & Noble. “This recognition for the twelfth year in a row reflects our longstanding commitment to diversity and equality in the workplace for our booksellers around the country.”

The 2019 CEI report evaluates LGBTQ-related policies and practices including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs and public engagement with the LGBTQ community. Barnes & Noble’s efforts in satisfying all of the CEI’s criteria results in a 100 percent ranking and the designation as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.
