Clorox! Who Knew!?!

For the fourth time, Clorox has received a 100% rating in workplace equality from the Human Rights Campaign.

Don Knauss, the CEO and Chairman of Clorox:

At Clorox, we believe it doesn’t matter if you’re black or white, gay or straight, tall or short. What matters is the kind of human being you are, your character. Sexual orientation, gender identity, expression or characteristics are not differences that should matter except for the richness and diversity of thought and experience they bring to our company. If people are disenfranchised for these reasons, or any other, it limits the genius of an organization. That’s why Clorox actively promotes an environment that celebrates diversity, that makes it comfortable and safe for each person to bring his or her whole self to work every day. We’re pleased our rating on the Corporate Equality Index reflects this commitment.”
