Caesars Entertainment has announced that it received a perfect 100 percent score on the 2018 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) for the eleventh straight year. CEI is a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.

"For years, Caesars Entertainment has been on the leading edge of progressive policies around human rights," said Jan Jones Blackhurst, Executive Vice President, Public Policy & Corporate Responsibility at Caesars. "We continue to engage people of diverse backgrounds – including LGBTQ team members, guests and suppliers – to promote our support for equality. Caesars is proud of this recognition by the Human Rights Campaign, and to be a leader in championing diversity and equal rights for everyone."

Ten year ago, Caesars became the first hospitality and gaming company in the industry to establish an LGBTQ business resource group for employees.
