AXA Named a Best Place to Work for LGBT Equality

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) awarded AXA a perfect score on the 2017
Corporate Equality Index

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–AXA,
a leader in providing life insurance and annuity products, has scored a
perfect score of 100 for the fourth consecutive year and has been deemed
one of the Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality by the Human Rights
Campaign (HRC).

The HRC’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI) is the national benchmarking
survey on corporate policies and practices pertinent to lesbian, gay,
bisexual, transgender and queer employees. The survey evaluates
LGBT-related policies and practices including non-discrimination
workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive
health care benefits, competency programs, and public engagement with
the LGBT community. Employers who receive a score of 100 satisfy all of
the CEI’s criteria and receive the designation as a Best Place to Work
for LGBT Equality.

“We do our best to make AXA a place where people can bring their whole
selves to work and where our differences can be celebrated,” said Marine
de Boucaud, Chief Human Resources Officer, AXA US. “The recognition by
HRC inspires our continued efforts to improve the support and benefits
we offer all employees as there is still room for improvement.”

AXA has a history of supporting its LGBT employees by adopting programs
to improve workplace equality, including offering health-care benefits
to same-sex couples for the past thirteen years and covering same-sex
couples in its parental
leave policy
. AXA Pride, an employee resource group founded in 2009,
creates and sustains an AXA presence in the LGBT community to drive
business results and promote equality for all employees. Through
partnership with AXA Pride, AXA has been a gold
sponsor of NYC Pride
since 2014 with a large employee population
participating each year. In addition, many AXA Advisors financial
professionals located in branches across the country specialize
in financial planning for same-sex couples and their families.
