Awards Inclusion Responsibility
February 26, 2024: Global leader in video commerce again received a rating of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index

WEST CHESTER, Pa. – Qurate Retail Group, which includes retail brands QVC®, HSN®, Ballard Designs®, Frontgate®, Garnet Hill®, and Grandin Road®, today announced it has received a score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation’s 2023-2024 Corporate Equality Index, the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality. Qurate Retail Group’s top score earned it the designation of being an Equality 100 Award: Leader in LGBTQ+ Workplace Inclusion recipient for 2023-2024.

“At Qurate Retail, we believe in fostering inclusion and respect within our teams and the communities we serve – this award is a testament to our steadfast commitment to workplace equality and a credit to our ongoing corporate responsibility efforts that we are excited to continue making progress against in the coming year,” said Virginia Nguyen, Chief Diversity & Impact Officer, Qurate Retail Group. “We are proud to have earned a top score on the 2023-2024 Corporate Equality Index and grateful to the Human Rights Campaign Foundation for the vital work they do.”

The HRC Corporate Equality Index rates companies on four central pillars:

  • Non-discrimination policies across business entities;
  • Equitable benefits for LGBTQ+ workers and their families;
  • Supporting an inclusive culture; and,
  • Corporate social responsibility.

“For well over two decades, businesses have played an important role in furthering LGBTQ+ equality by centering employee needs and voices when it comes to workplace inclusion. While there is much more work to be done, year-over-year growth in CEI participation is evidence of a business community that recognizes the responsibility and value in upholding equity and inclusion,” said RaShawn “Shawnie” Hawkins, Human Rights Campaign Sr Director of Workplace Equality. “The CEI is an ever-evolving tool – a blueprint that companies can use to show up more effectively in supporting their LGBTQ+ employees and their families.”

Companies rated in the CEI include Fortune 500 companies, American Lawyer magazine’s top 200 revenue-grossing law firms (AmLaw 200), and hundreds of publicly and privately held mid- to large-sized businesses.
