Oshkosh 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, Oshkosh Corporation 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. Oshkosh 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 has an unconscious bias training program and hosts a DE&I Council. Oshkosh has racial and gender quotas, prioritizing diversity over merit in its hiring and leadership compensation. The company supports DEI within its business practices. Oshkosh’s CEO, John C. Pfeifer, 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 member of Wisconsin's LGBT Chamber. For these reasons, Oshkosh receives a High Risk rating.
