Amtrak recognized for diversity initiatives…

Transport provider, Amtrak, has been recognized as being a Forbes Best Employer For Diversity. Winners were selected from a survey of 45,000 US employees based on age, gender, ethnicity, disability, LGBTQIA+ and general diversity. Extensive research evaluated how it fared including on metrics including providing employee resource groups (ERGs), what it diversity data showed, and the share of women in board and executive positions. “Amtrak is building a new era of passenger rail that will change how America moves,” Qiana Spain, Amtrak executive vice president and chief human resource officer, said. “This includes a comprehensive diversity and inclusion strategy that supports recruiting, developing and retaining our people.” The accolade comes on the back of two more recent external recognitions for diversity, inclusion and belonging – including it receiving top placing on the 2022 Disability Equality Index and the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2022 Corporate Equality Index.
