TPG Earns Top Marks in 2019 Corporate Equality Index

Fort Worth, Texas, and San Francisco – April 2, 2019 – TPG, a leading global alternative asset firm, proudly announced that the firm  received a perfect score of 100 on the 2019 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the  nation’s premier benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and  practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights  Campaign (HRC) Foundation. TPG joins the ranks of over 560 major U.S.  businesses that also earned top marks this year. 2019 represents the second  year in a row that TPG has been recognized for its perfect score. 

“We believe that developing a diverse and inclusive culture  is essential to attracting and retaining talent, building strong businesses,  and creating value for our investors,” said Anilu Vazquez-Ubarri, Chief Human  Resources Officer of TPG. “We are deeply committed to advancing diversity and  inclusion at every level of our organization, and continually review our  policies and practices to ensure they are effective in supporting the needs of  a diverse population. We are delighted to share our CEI score with the TPG  community and thank the Human Rights Campaign for their support and unwavering  dedication to advancing LGBTQ workplace equality.” 

The 2019 CEI evaluates LGBTQ-related policies and practices  including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits,  transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs, and public  engagement with the LGBTQ community. TPG’s efforts in satisfying all of the  CEI’s criteria results in a 100 percent ranking and the designation as a Best  Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.

“The top-scoring companies on this year’s CEI are not only  establishing policies that affirm and include employees here in the United  States, they are applying these policies to their global operations and  impacting millions of people beyond our shores,” said HRC President Chad  Griffin. “Time and again, leading American businesses have shown that  protecting their employees and customers from discrimination isn’t just the  right thing to do -- it’s also good for business.”

TPG’s top score on the 2019 CEI builds on its commitment to  creating a diverse, inclusive, equal, and safe environment at the firm. Last  year, TPG introduced new signage that encourages its employees and guests in  its offices to use the restroom that best fits their gender identity or  expression. In February, the firm revised its parental leave policy to allow  for longer and more flexible leave. Primary caregivers are able to take up to  18 weeks of leave, with the option to take the last four weeks on an  intermittent basis. Nonprimary caregivers are eligible to receive four weeks of  leave, which may be taken intermittently throughout the first year of welcoming  a new child. The policy is gender neutral and applies to families welcoming children  through birth, adoption, and foster care.
