Summary:

Qurate Retail Group, the parent company of QVC, cut ties with Mike Lindell, CEO of MyPillow, after his remarks regarding the 2020 election. Qurate Retail Group 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, Qurate Retail Group 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. Qurate Retail Group 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's CEO signed the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion pledge and will match donations given to ideologically driven racial groups but will not fund religious organizations. Qurate regularly supports LGBTQ Pride and its CEO is a member of the Business Roundtable. The company is a brass sponsor of Out & Equal and in 2022, HSN and QVC donated $100,000 to the Trevor Project. For these reasons, Qurate receives a High Risk rating.
