Summary:

Warner Music 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, Warner Music 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. Warner Music 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 integrates ESG into all of its business practices and supports the Equality Act. The company has pledged support to BLM and related causes and partnered with LGBTQ group Outright International to celebrate Pride Month. Warner Music Group opposed various state and local legislation intended to protect parental rights, girls’ sports, bathroom facilities, and gendered spaces. The company is a member of the "Don't Ban Equality" business coalition. For these reasons, Warner Music Group receives a High Risk rating.
