EA given a perfect score by Human Rights Campaign

See also

The Human Rights Campaign released another Corporate Equality Index earlier today, which includes a lengthy list of companies and how their policies affect the LGBT community. On that list is Electronic Arts, a perplexing company that has somehow managed to be crowned the “worst company in America” on multiple occasions, as well as “one of the best places to work” by the HRC. The publisher has responded on their website regarding their place on the 12th annual Equality Index, in which they were given the perfect score of 100.

We are extremely proud of this achievement that recognizes corporate policies and practices that demonstrate a commitment to LGBT equality and inclusion. In addition to this exciting achievement, EA was busy around the world throughout the year supporting local Pride Parades where our employees live and work. From San Fransisco to Los Angeles, Seattle to Stockholm, Vancouver to Austin and finally in Orlando, everyone who came out to join EA and show their support and pride had an amazing time.

EA has come out in support for LGBT rights possibly more than any other gaming company. They hosted an event earlier this year where they spoke with other developers about the inclusion of LGBT characters and how to deal with hateful player interactions. Many of EA's games have included either LGBT characters or options for players to customize their avatar to better reflect their own preferences. This is an incentive that EA promises to continue into 2014.

EA's entry in the index can be found on the HRC site and is featured on page 61.
