MGM Resorts ranks high for LGBT equality

Posted: Updated:
LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

MGM Resorts International has adopted a dedicated program aimed at insuring workplace equality for employees in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community (LGBT).

Now, the company has been rewarded, earning a perfect score from the 2013 Corporate Equality Index, an annual survey conducted by the Human Rights Campaign that ranks major corporations for non-discrimination and benefits practices with respect to LGBT employees.

"As the first corporation in our industry to formally adopt a diversity initiative, we stand as a company fully committed to promoting human equality in our workforce as well as the experiences we offer our guests," said Jim Murren, chairman and CEO of MGM Resorts International. "The essence of hospitality is treating others with the utmost level of respect and gratitude with excellence, and that at the core comprises the bedrock of our company's culture."
