Summary:

World Wide Technology scored an 85 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, World Wide Technology 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 vendor selection, marketing, and philanthropic support. World Wide Technology 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. Its CEO signed the Business Roundtables Statement on the Purpose of a Corporation, which promotes stakeholder capitalism over traditional obligations to shareholders and customers. World Wide Technology requires all employees complete Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) training by 2024. The company is a voting member of QuEST Forum Board which uses its influence to drive climate change. However, World Wide Technology does not appear to discriminate against charitable organizations based on views or beliefs. For these reasons, World Wide Technology receives a Medium Risk rating.
