having a NEGATIVE 25 points! Even companies who don't respond to the HRC/CEI survey have better ratings than Exxon Mobile. And, of approximately 950 companies (whether they respond or not) Exxon Mobile remains the only company with negative points. I realize that some have little use or respect for the HRC, but no matter what your feelings are about the entity, it seems to me that being the only company to care so little about the TGBL community would move someone at Exxon Mobile to make changes.

Gives a whole new meaning to "dyed in the wool !!"

Respecting LGBTQ rights is not only is the right thing to do but makes good business sense! Prejudiced companies and people shoot themselves in the foot!!

"Exxon is the only Fortune 500 company to rescind workplace protections on the basis of the sexual orientation of their employees and domestic partner benefits, after the 1999 merger. As HRC points out, most of ExxonMobil's major competitors — BP, Chevron, Marathon Oil, and Shell — ensure protections for LGBT employees. Additionally, 89 percent of Fortune 500 companies have protections for workers on the basis of sexual orientation, and 66 percent have those protections for workers on the basis of gender identity." --advocate.com

ExxonMobil Finally Updates Worker Protection Policy
