NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Moody’s Corporation (NYSE:MCO) announced today that it has again
received a perfect 100 percent score on the 2016 Corporate Equality
Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate
policies and practices related to LGBT workplace equality administered
by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.

“We are honored to have achieved another a top ranking from the Human
Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index, in recognition of Moody’s
success in promoting a culture of inclusion and equality for our
employees,” said Lisa Westlake, Senior Vice President and Chief Human
Resources Officer at Moody’s.

The 100 percent ranking recognizes Moody’s efforts in satisfying all of
the CEI’s criteria and the designation of Moody’s as a “Best Place to
