VF Corporation Named a Best Place to Work for LGBT Equality

GREENSBORO, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–VF Corporation (NYSE: VFC) today announced that it achieved a perfect
score (100 points) on the 2017 Corporate Equality Index, earning the
distinction as a Best Place to Work for LGBT Equality from the Human
Rights Campaign Foundation (HRC). The Corporate Equality Index (CEI) is
the national benchmarking tool that assesses corporate policies and
practices pertaining to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender

“At VF, appreciation for our differences is a value that is woven into
the fabric of our culture,” said Anita Graham, Vice President and Chief
Human Resources Officer, VF Corporation. “We value our associates and
consumers for who they are, and our corporate policies and practices
reinforce our commitment to inclusiveness and respect for every
individual. We are proud to receive this recognition from the HRC.”

To receive a perfect score on the CEI report, companies must have
explicit non-discrimination protections for LGBT employees included in
all operations, require contractors to follow these non-discrimination
protections, and disallow any philanthropic donations to non-religious
organizations with written policies of discrimination.

The HRC is America’s largest civil rights organization working to
achieve LGBT equality. By inspiring and engaging all Americans, HRC
strives to end discrimination against LGBT citizens and realize a nation
that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.
