Apple prides itself on being a company that takes solid and concrete steps towards becoming a more inclusive and diverse environment, and this effort is reflected in the recognition of external bodies.

For a few years now, the Cupertino giant has achieved top scores in the corporate equality survey of Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and in 2019 it was no different, as reported by Fortune.

The score indicates actions taken by a particular company in favor of sexual diversity. as well as the receptivity of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people (in addition to other classifications of the spectrum) by these companies.

For the 17th consecutive year, Apple achieved the top score, 100 Not surprisingly, given Tim Cook's active work on LGBTQ + causes, the company's diversity actions, and Ma's overall very positive attitude toward minorities.

The best news is that the 2019 survey had the highest number of companies with the highest HRC index: 571 companies with a score of 100 including several Apple competitors, such as Amazon, O Facebook and the Microsoft.

O Google one case goes away. He would also get top marks in the survey, but was suspended until he resolved a problem that has surrounded Google Play: so far, the company has not banned a nasty app that promises to “cure gays” (already taken from the App Store last December ).

As for Apple and all the well-rated companies, keep it up. 😃
