Mattel Earns Perfect Score on Human Rights Campaign's Corporate Equality Index for Second Consecutive Year


Mattel, Inc. (NASDAQ: MAT) has, for the second consecutive year, received a perfect score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation's Corporate Equality Index, the nation's foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality. Mattel joins the ranks of more than 760 major U.S. businesses that also earned top marks this year. The results were released today by The Human Rights Campaign Foundation.

"Mattel is deeply honored to once again be recognized by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation as one of the country's top workplaces for LGBTQ+ equality," said Amy Thompson, Executive Vice President and Chief People Officer, Mattel. "At Mattel, we create innovative products and experiences that inspire, entertain and develop children through play. And we know we do our best work when every member of our team feels respected, included and heard. We are committed to fostering an environment of inclusivity that values and celebrates all voices, life experiences and perspectives."

"From the previously unimaginable impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, to a long overdue reckoning with racial injustice, 2020 was an unprecedented year. Yet, many businesses across the nation stepped up and continued to prioritize and champion LGBTQ+ equality," said Alphonso David, Human Rights Campaign President. "This year has shown us that tools like the CEI are crucial in the work to increase equity and inclusion in the workplace, but also that companies must breathe life into these policies and practices in real and tangible ways. Thank you to the companies that understand protecting their LGBTQ+ employees and consumers from discrimination is not just the right thing to do?but the best business decision."

The results of the 2021 CEI showcase how 1,142 U.S.-based companies are not only promoting LGBTQ+-friendly workplace policies in the U.S., but also for the 57% of CEI-rated companies with global operations who are helping advance the cause of LGBTQ+ inclusion in workplaces abroad. Mattel's efforts in satisfying all CEI's criteria earned a 100 percent ranking and the designation as one of the Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality.

The CEI rates employers providing these crucial protections to over 18 million U.S. workers and an additional 17 million abroad. Companies rated in the CEI include Fortune magazine's 500 largest publicly traded businesses, American Lawyer magazine's top 200 revenue-grossing law firms (AmLaw 200), and hundreds of publicly and privately held mid- to large-sized businesses.
