Risk Level:

Rating - Caution
Medium Risk


Tesla scored a 55 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, Tesla increases the risk of dividing employees, alienating customers and harming shareholders. It also uses sex and gender ideology criteria in employee recruitment, vendor selection, and philanthropic support. Tesla forces employees to undergo multiple ideological trainings and uses its corporate funds to support controversial sex and gender ideologies and organizations. Tesla did get into trouble for firing a pro-unionization worker who was eventually rehired. The company provides a benefits package for employees which covers travel/lodging costs for an abortion and transgender medical procedures for covered employees and dependents, including children. Tesla supports the Equality Act. For these reasons, Tesla receives a Medium Risk rating.
