Fannie Mae scoops Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality

Fannie Mae has been recognized as one of the best places to work for LGBTQ+ equality by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation for the eighth year in a row.

According to its release, it received a perfect score of 100 on its 2022 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) – a survey and report that measures corporate policies, practices, and benefits related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality.

Fannie Mae CEO Hugh Frater said the award was a testament to the company’s focus on diversity and inclusion.

“Our diverse workforce and inclusive practices are foundational to who we are,” Frater said. “They are a fundamental source of our corporate strength and our business competitiveness.”
