Exxon Mobil

The latest news about Exxon Mobil, the oil company with the worst ranking from the Human Rights Campaign. Exxon Mobil is the only company ever to receive a negative score on the Human Rights Campaign's Corporate Equality Index, which rates companies based on their LGBT-inclusive policies and practices. Shareholders of the petroleum giant have continually rejected an antidiscrimination resolution that would have protected employees from being fired or harassed simply because they are LGBT.
