Human Rights Campaign (HRC)Nissan is committed to being inclusive to the LGBTQ community, whether they are employees or customers of the automaker. That is not just a statement thrown out to the press, either, as proven by its latest recognition. The brand received a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation Corporate Equality Index because of its dedication to the LGBTQ community and its causes, as well as for its LGBTQ-inclusive policies when it comes to its employees. This perfect score isn’t an irregularity, either, as this is the fourth year in a row that Nissan has been recognized by HRC.

“We’re committed to diversity within our workplace, and Nissan has reason to be proud of its inclusive policies and public practices with its perfect score on the HRC Foundation Corporate Equality Index.” says Rebecca Vest, vice president, Corporate Development and Social Responsibility, Nissan North America, Inc. “The Human Rights Campaign is doing important work to support our LGBTQ colleagues, friends and family members in their efforts to live and work in safe, inclusive environments where they can thrive. Nissan remains committed to fostering a culture of inclusion for all LGBTQ individuals.”

The HRC Foundation uses a survey to score companies for the index, and it includes questions about whether there are equal opportunities for all employees, no matter their sexual orientation of gender identity. HRC also looks for training in the company to encourage sensitivity and equal treatment for all. According to Nissan, it also has the most diverse customer base in automotive manufacturing. It also offers  the Gay Straight Alliance at Nissan (GSAN) to make sure that the LGBTQ community is involved in all aspects of daily life at Nissan. We congratulate Nissan on its efforts, and also encourage them to continue on the road ahead.
