Aviation companies JetSuite, a leading private charter operator, and JSX, a hop-on jet service revolutionizing short haul travel with daily flights from private terminals, proudly announced that they received a score of 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2020 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the nation’s premier benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality.
“Receiving a perfect score for our LGBTQ inclusive workplace policies, practices and benefits from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2020 Corporate Equality Index is one of the great honors of my 30+ year career in aviation,” stated Alex Wilcox, CEO of JetSuite and JSX. “We are always looking for passionate individuals from varied backgrounds to join our team, and we believe that our dedication to diversity and inclusion makes us well-rounded leaders in aviation and provides us with a distinct advantage in serving our diverse customers.“
The results of this year’s CEI showcase how 1059 U.S.-based companies are not only promoting LGBTQ-friendly workplace policies in the U.S., but helping advance the cause of LGBTQ inclusion in workplaces abroad. JetSuite and JSX’s efforts in satisfying all of the CEI’s criteria earned a 100 percent ranking and the designation as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.
“Traditionally, our industry has been slow to appreciate the differences that unite both our crewmembers and our customer base,” added Kevin Horan, Vice President of Corporate Soul. “I am proud to be part of two exemplary brands, which foster an inclusive work environment that not only respects, but values all crew members equally.”
JetSuite’s President, Stephanie Chung, who spoke at The National Gay Pilots Association (NGPA) Industry Expo in 2019, commended the organization’s efforts and affirmed the companies’ dedication to LGBTQ representation in the workplace, stating, “on behalf of JetSuite and JSX, we are so proud to stand here with you, to support you and to run alongside you.”
