Corporate Weaponization
Criteria

The company recruits employees based on sexual identity issues.

Black Knight Inc. has not publicly fired customers, suppliers, or vendors based on views or beliefs, however.

Criteria

Charitable giving (including employee matching programs) policies or practices discriminate against charitable organizations based on views or religious beliefs.
