Kodak Earns Highest Rating on Human Rights Campaign Index

For the fourth straight year, Kodak earned a 100 percent rating from the Human Rights Campaign. Chief HR Officer, Robert Berman released the following statement:

We're absolutely thrilled to be recognized by the Human Rights Campaign again this year.

The Corporate Equality Index examines how corporations "walk their talk" on diversity and inclusion for GLBT employees. And for the fourth year in a row, Kodak is pleased to be among the highest-ranking companies, with a 100 percent ranking.

This recognition really highlights the efforts of Kodak people - members of our Lambda Network for GLBT employees, as well as managers and allies - who work together to create a safe, inclusive and welcoming environment at Kodak sites around the world.

Our drive toward a Winning and Inclusive Culture is a journey, with key milestones that reflect our progress.

Recently, we created a website that showcases GLBT pride, along with Lambda's community and business activities, at And, last month, we welcomed transgender advocate and author Donna Rose to speak with employees about the challenges transgender individuals encounter in the workplace.

Kodak has established guidelines to help employees understand these issues, and treat their transgender co-workers with respect and dignity. We've recently updated those guidelines to reflect what we've learned over the last four years.

But our journey of diversity and inclusion is never-ending. We're proud that the Human Rights Campaign continues to rank Kodak at the top on its Corporate Equality Index, but we must continue to move forward, working together, to ensure that we sustain a work environment that allows all Kodak employees to contribute to their full potential.
