“Diversity, equity, and inclusion is one of U. S. Steel’s most deeply rooted values, a cornerstone of our business operations, and a key driver of our Best for All® strategy,” said U. S. Steel President and Chief Executive Officer David B. Burritt. “Receiving our fourth consecutive perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index is a distinction earned in large part by the members of our employee resource groups (ERGs), especially SteelPRIDE, an ERG that works continuously to champion the LGBTQ+ community both within and outside of our ranks.”
The CEI rates companies on detailed criteria falling under four central pillars:
- non-discrimination policies across business entities
- equitable benefits for LGBTQ workers and their families
- internal education and accountability metrics to promote LGBTQ inclusion competency
- public commitment to LGBTQ equality
“Being top-rated on the Corporate Equality Index and receiving the Human Rights Campaign’s Equality 100 Award further underscore that at U. S. Steel, DE&I is unmistakably and intrinsically woven into our business strategy,” said Mona Dine, U. S. Steel General Manager, Human Resources & Chief Diversity Officer. “We know that it makes us stronger as an organization, strengthens our corporate culture, and enhances our ability to provide better solutions for our customers and each other.”
