Top marks for Iron Mountain in 2021 Corporate Equality Index

Iron Mountain has announced that it received a score of 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2021 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality. Iron Mountain has earned this perfect score for four consecutive years and joins the ranks of 767 other major US businesses that also earned top marks this year.

“We’re proud of our score, which reflects our focus on inclusion and diversity as a critical component of our business," said Deborah Marson, Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary at Iron Mountain. Marson, who also leads and stewards the company’s inclusion and diversity program, adds, "We’re especially thrilled to see that the number of top scoring organizations has increased throughout the years that we have been on this important list. Inclusion is not only a business imperative - it’s fundamental for our communities and society as a whole."

As one of its core values, Iron Mountain is committed to create and foster an inclusive and diverse work environment for all. Additionally, Iron Mountain provides outreach to and support of the LGBTQ community through its LGBTQ+ and Allies employee resource group (ERG), one of many voluntary and employee-led groups that create a supportive social space for individuals of common interests, backgrounds or demographic in alignment with the company’s mission and values.
