McKesson scored a 100 on the 2023 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) from the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), a political stakeholder group. By complying with the HRC’s controversial demands, McKesson increases the risk of dividing employees, alienating customers and harming shareholders. The company covers transgender-related medical costs for its employees and their children and provides specific sexual orientation and gender identity-based benefits. It also uses sex and gender ideology criteria in employee recruitment, vendor selection, marketing, and philanthropic support. McKesson 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. McKesson was sued by a former employee who alleged that she was fired for refusing the coronavirus vaccine on religious grounds, but the company denies this allegation. The company does not provide viewpoint protections for its employees. McKesson is a signatory of the Business Roundtable's 2019 Statement on the Purpose of Corporation, which promotes stakeholder capitalism over traditional shareholder obligations. McKesson opposed various state and local legislation intended to protect parental rights, girls’ sports, bathroom facilities, and gendered spaces. McKesson signed an open letter in support of the Equality Act. For these reasons, McKesson receives a High Risk rating.
