CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 28, 2019--
Navigant (NYSE: NCI) proudly announced today that for the 10th
consecutive year it has received a perfect score on the 2019 Corporate
Equality Index (CEI). Administered by the Human Rights Campaign
Foundation (HRC), the CEI is a U.S. benchmarking survey and report on
corporate policies and practices related to lesbian, gay, bisexual,
transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) workplace equality.

know that diversity of background and perspective creates value amongst
our employees, clients, and stakeholders,” said Julie Howard, Navigant
chairman and CEO. “We are honored to receive this recognition for the
10th consecutive year and will continue to support a culture of
belonging and inclusion, embracing the diversity that has helped
Navigant evolve into the company we are today.”

appreciation for its progressive work environment through programs
championed by the company’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and
Allies Employee Resource Group called NAVPRIDE. In 2018, the company

people as are provided to other protected groups under federal law.

straight years is a recognition of Navigant’s continuous support of the
LGBTQ community and demonstrates the values that Navigant works to
