Illinois companies score high for LGBT equality

The Human Rights Campaign issues an annual rating of U.S. companies' dedication to LGBT equality in the workplace. This year’s Corporate Equality Index includes several Illinois-based companies that scored 100. And, it’s not just about hiring more gay and lesbian workers; the report touts that corporate America has been a leader in the transgender community, often offering transgender-inclusive health care packages. One of the companies that scored a 100 is Chicago-based Aon. We talk with Nichole Barnes Marshall, leader of Aon’s global diversity and inclusion program, about what the company does to receive this distinction.
