AMN Healthcare is proud to be part of the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI), which distinguishes companies committed to transparency in gender reporting and advancing women's equality. Bloomberg's standardized reporting framework offers public companies the opportunity to disclose information on how they promote gender equality across four separate areas – company statistics, policies, community engagement and products and services. This framework is the only international standardized reporting and disclosure method for workplace gender data.
AMN Healthcare was named for the second year to the Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index (CEI) premier benchmarking survey in the U.S. for corporate policies and practices relating to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) workplace equality.
The 2019 CEI 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.
