Workplace Equality Index®
IHS Markit is listed on the Workplace Equality Index®, an equity index comprised of the world's leading equality-minded companies. It consists of companies that support lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBTQ) equality in the workplace. Inclusion is based on a number of criteria including non-discrimination practices, benefits for LGBTQ employees and their families, as well as support of the company's LGBTQ employee group.
CEO Diversity Pledge
Lance Uggla, Chairman of the Board of Directors and CEO, signed the CEO diversity pledge on behalf of IHS Markit, committing to make our workplace a trusting places to have complex, and sometimes difficult, conversations about diversity and inclusion, to implement and expand unconscious bias education and to share best-and unsuccessful-practices.
Pride@IHSMarkit are groups open to all employees that aim to create a culture and a company that is welcoming and inclusive for LGBTQ colleagues. These groups raise awareness through communication and events with active employee Pride groups in the US, UK and India. Their remit, both internal and external, is to engage with partner networks, clients and the communities around us. In 2017, we launched a company-wide LGBTQ Ally program. An ally can be anyone who supports the LGBTQ community.
