Amtrak scored a 100 out of 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. The company provides a benefits package for employees which covers transgender medical procedures for covered employees and dependents, including children. It also uses sex and gender ideology criteria in employee recruitment, vendor selection, marketing, and philanthropic support. Amtrak 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. Amtrak offers unconscious bias education to its employees and an Inclusive Management course. The company appears to prioritize diversity over merit in its busines structure, including its recruitment and supply chain. Amtrak is as an Affirmative Action employer, “Affirmative action is taken to ensure the fulfillment of this policy.” The company’s CEO, Stephen Gardner, signed the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion pledge, which includes a commitment to promote DEI through bias education training in the workplace. For these reasons, Amtrak receives a Higher Risk rating.
