STAMFORD, Conn., January 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Synchrony proudly announced that it has received a perfect score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2022 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the nation’s largest benchmarking survey and the report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ equality in the workplace. This is the seventh consecutive year that Synchrony’s commitment to LGBTQ+ diversity and inclusion has been recognized by the company’s highest score, earning designation as one of the “Best Workplaces for LGBTQ+ Equality “.

“Equity, diversity and inclusion are at the heart of our culture and it’s how we operate.”

“Now more than ever, it is essential that we continue to develop and sustain a culture that welcomes, values ​​and celebrates all experiences and perspectives,” said Michael Matthews, Director of Diversity and Corporate Responsibility at Synchrony. “Equity, diversity and inclusion are at the heart of our culture and it’s how we operate. We are grateful to be recognized for our continued commitment as the best workplace for LGBTQ+ equality. “

Synchrony cultivates a diverse and inclusive workplace through its eight diversity networks, with more than 10,000 employees actively working in these employee resource groups to help attract, retain and develop diverse talent. Through the company’s LGBT+ network, thousands of employees help cultivate an environment where individuals can thrive, be authentic themselves, and help advocate for LGBTQ+ people in the communities and markets we serve.

In 2002, the first year of the IEC, only 13 companies obtained the highest score, demonstrating the incredible impact that the IEC has had on the business world during its 20 years of existence. This year’s IEC reflects growth in all measurement categories, from the adoption of inclusive non-discrimination policies to equitable health care benefits for transgender employees.

“When the Human Rights Campaign Foundation created the Corporate Equality Index 20 years ago, we dreamed that LGBTQ+ workers, from the factory floor to the corporate office, in big cities and small towns, would have access to the policies and benefits needed to thrive and live authentically,” said Jay Brown, senior vice president of programs, research and training for the Human Rights Campaign. “We are proud that the Corporate Equality Index has paved the way for this reality for countless LGBTQ+ workers in America and abroad. But there is still more to do, which is why we are still raising a times the bar to create more equitable workplaces and a better tomorrow for LGBTQ+ workers everywhere. Congratulations to Synchrony for earning the title of “Best Workplaces for LGBTQ+ Equality” and working to advance the inclusion in the workplace.”

As part of the IEC 2022, Synchrony was evaluated on policies and practices on four key pillars: non-discrimination policies in business entities, equitable benefits for LGBTQ+ workers and their families, support for a inclusive culture and corporate social responsibility. Synchrony’s commitment and policies met all IEC criteria.

The full report is available online at www.hrc.org/cei.

KINGSTON, NY – The Hudson River Maritime Museum has announced an upcoming lecture titled “The World of Elizabeth Jennings,” by Jerry Mikorenda, taking place virtually Wednesday, February 23 at 7 p.m. in conjunction with Human History Month. Black.

For many, the civil rights movement began with Rosa Parks’ courageous stand against segregation in 1955. However, few realize that the right for African Americans to even ride streetcars was won 100 years ago. previously in a landmark civil rights case in New York. City.

In 1854, traveling was fraught with danger. Omnibus accidents were commonplace. Pedestrians were regularly attacked by Five Points gangs. Rival police forces watched and argued over who should help. None of this was on Elizabeth Jennings’ mind as she climbed onto the platform on the Chatham Street horse-drawn carriage.

But his destination and that of the country took a sudden turn when the driver told him to wait for the next car because there were “his people” in it. When she refused to leave the bus, she was assaulted by the driver, who was assisted by a police officer.

Jennings fought for the right to ride New York horse carts, with future President Chester A. Arthur as her defense attorney.

Mikorenda brings this little-known struggle to life with “The World of Elizabeth Jennings,” based on her book, “America’s First Freedom Rider: Elizabeth Jennings, Chester A. Arthur, and the Early Fight for Civil Rights.”

Using rare vintage photos and lithographs, the author recreates Jennings’ world by exploring the sites and people of old New York as the momentous battle with the Third Avenue Railroad unfolded.

Conference tickets are $7 for the general public and free for Hudson River Maritime Museum members. To register, visit www.hrmm.org/lecture-series.

An art exhibit inspired by the Organ Mountain-Desert Peaks National Monument and nearby ranches and farmlands opens at the New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum (NMFRHM) on Friday, April 23.

“Monumental Territory” will be on display in the museum’s arts hallway through the end of July 2021. The exhibit features 22 creative works by Las Cruces artist Kayla Blundell.

Blundell’s selection of Artists in Residence for the Friends of the Organ Mountain-Desert Peaks National Monument program in 2016 inspired the art of the show.

The exhibit features abstract paintings, including acrylic spray paint, and photographs. Blundell’s work relates to the culture of New Mexico as it captures the beauty of the national monument and the life on the nearby farm and ranch communities. In some of her mixed media work, she uses papier-mâché to create a 3D effect to help the viewer feel the feel of the mountains and maar volcanic arc known as Kilbourne Hole in the south of the county by Dona Ana.

“One of the first things that all the farmers, ranchers, and New Mexicans around here see every day (these are the mountains), and it’s a great historic landmark that connects everyone who lives here and continues to be a landmark in our lives,” Blundell said. “We get so used to the areas we live in and tend to get trapped in complacency, forgetting to look around at the beautiful surroundings.

“If you drive down Baylor Canyon Road, you’ll see three things: ranches with roaming cattle, the river and farmland in the distance, and the beautiful national monument,” she said. “Also, if you drive through the valley, you will see three things: the farmland, the ranching cattle and, of course, the beautiful national monument.

In her photographs, Blundell captures the scenes and farm life she enjoys in hopes of encouraging those around her to love farm and ranch life in Monumental Territory. Painting is a passion that she carries and uses to express herself through the surrounding nature and culture.

Blundell was born and raised in West Texas. She moved to Las Cruces in 2011 when she married her husband, Josh Blundell, who helped her with this show. He made all the frames for his work.

NMFRHM’s 47-acre facility at 4100 Dripping Springs Road that shares and preserves the area’s 4,000-year history of food culture. The campus includes barns, corrals, livestock, art galleries, indoor and outdoor exhibits, a gift shop, and snack bar. The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday to Saturday.
