FYI this index does not measure actual results or impact. Rather, it is a benchmarking tool to categorize companies that have satisfied a 9 point checklist of conditions and requirements the HRC deems as conducive to the equal treatment of the LGBT community. So, while Walgreens may have policies, benefits and practices, there is no implication that these structures are utilized at all and properly if so. The actual report ranks Walmart before Walgreens. within its peer group of Fortune 500 companies Walgreens ranks 33rd. To put this into perspective BOA ranked 13th and burger kind ranked 828th. So not bad, but I'm not sure what medal to award 33rd place.

There seems to be some type of positive spin on the title of the original article. Obviously saying and doing are completely different things. I am technically eligible to become president of the united states; however, that does not actually make me POTUS. you can view the actaul report here to reach your own conclusion http://www.hrc.org/files/assets/resources/cei...
