Summary:

Alaska Airlines fired two employees who questioned the company's support for the Equality Act. Alaska Airlines scored a 100 on the 2023-2024 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) from the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), a political stakeholder group. By complying with the HRC’s controversial demands, the company increases the risk of dividing employees, alienating customers and harming shareholders. It also uses sex and gender ideology criteria in employee recruitment, vendor selection, marketing, and philanthropic support. Alaska Airlines forces employees to undergo multiple ideological trainings and uses its reputation, corporate funds, and political influence to support controversial sex and gender ideologies, organizations, and legislation. The company provides a benefits package for employees which covers travel/lodging costs for an abortion and transgender medical procedures for covered employees and dependents, including children. America First Legal filed a letter with the EEOC requesting a civil rights investigation into Alaska Airlines over discriminatory practices in hiring. The company supports the Equality Act and the Black Lives Matter movement. Alaska Airlines CEO, Ben Minicucci, signed the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion pledge, which includes a commitment to promote DEI through bias education training in the workplace. The company is a gold sponsor of the HRC and lobbied for the Equality Act. For these reasons, Alaska Airlines receives a High Risk rating.
