Perfect Score

The Human Rights Campaign honored American with the highest possible ranking in the 2014 Corporate Equality Index (CEI).

Since the index’s inception 12 years ago, American has been the only airline to achieve a perfect score each year.

The CEI is a nationally recognized benchmark that provides an in-depth analysis of America’s top workplaces and their inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) employees and their allies.

“American Airlines has an enduring legacy, which gives us all pride,” said Cindy Fiedelman, Vice President – Human Resources. “Together with the leaders of GLEAM, American’s Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered Employee Resource Group, we are committed to being a leader in equality and inclusion.”

The Human Rights Campaign is dedicated to promoting and ensuring public understanding of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues through innovative education and communication strategies. A complete list of Corporate Equality Index rankings is available at
