The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) gives a score, the Corporate Equality Index (CEI) to corporations based on their protections and equality of LGBTQ+ people in the workforce. Here’s a company I didn’t expect to have a CEI of 100: Tractor Supply Company. As the name suggests, the company is a “rural lifestyle retailer.”
There is one right on Herndon/Brawley in Fresno, and another on Herndon/Fowler in Clovis, with the rest stretching up to Stockton and down to Tulare. The company started in North Dakota, but it’s a common place to run errands for rural folks, which is pretty much a whole lot of the Central Valley
I wonder what (if any at all) local companies/corporations in the Valley have a high CEI? This might be worth looking into.
