Raytheon achieves eighth consecutive 100 percent score on Corporate Equality Index

WALTHAM, Mass., Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) has achieved a perfect 100 percent score on the Human Rights Campaign's (HRC) 2013 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) for the eighth consecutive time.

The HRC, the nation's largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization, uses the CEI as a means to rate large U.S. companies on how they treat their LGBT employees, consumers and investors.

Raytheon is one of 250 companies to receive a perfect rating in what the HRC calls a banner year for the equality index.

"Leveraging diversity of talent and thought is paramount to Raytheon's inclusive culture, which we consider to be a competitive advantage," said Raytheon's Chief Diversity Officer Hayward Bell. "This eighth consecutive 100 percent rating of Raytheon by the HRC is a reflection of our core values to treat all people with respect and dignity, and to welcome diversity and diverse opinions from all our employees."

In 2005, Raytheon was the first aerospace and defense company to receive a perfect score on the CEI. The company was also among the first in its industry to adopt a domestic partner benefits policy in January 2002.
