Whirlpool received a score of 100 from the Human Rights Campaign on the 2011 Corporate Equality Index, making this the seventh consecutive year that Whirlpool has attained a perfect score on the index.

The Corporate Equality Index rates American workplaces on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) equality. It provides an in-depth analysis and rating of large U.S. employers' policies and practices regarding LGBT employees. The Index has been compiled annually for the past nine years.

"Whirlpool Corporation is proud to be a perennial leader on HRC's Corporate Equality Index," said Tim Reynolds, Whirlpool's vice president, Talent and Organizational Effectiveness. "It reflects our shared vision of striving to be a top company for LGBT employee rights, resources, and recruitment."

Criteria for the index takes into account a company's equal opportunity policy statements, spousal/partner benefits, diversity awareness training, and external marketing and advertising to the LGBT community, including talent acquisition and recruiting efforts.

Whirlpool has seven employee resource groups, one of which is the Pride Network, established in 1999 for Whirlpool's LGBT employees and their supporters.

Whirlpool's most recent outreach to potential LGBT employees was at this month's Reaching Out MBA event, the largest LGBT MBA recruiting fair in the U.S.
