NEW YORK, Jan. 27, 2022 /CNW/ — Shutterstock, Inc. (NYSE: SSTK), a leading global creative platform offering full-service solutions, high-quality content, and applications for brands, businesses and media companies, today announced that the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) has ranked Shutterstock as a "Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality," after achieving a perfect score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation's 2022 Corporate Equality Index, the nation's foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality.
"We are incredibly proud to receive a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index for 2022," said Meeckel Beecher, Global Head of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Shutterstock. "Being named a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ equality is recognition of our continued efforts to not only foster an inclusive workplace, but to also increase authentic representation of the LGBTQ+ community in visual media. I am exceptionally grateful for the contributions of our employees, particularly PRISM, our employee resource group promoting greater LGBTQ+ inclusion at Shutterstock, for everything they do to make Shutterstock a more accepting and welcoming place to work."

Through this partnership, four artists were recognized for their work in representing the LGBTQ+ community. Other highlights include the Company's ongoing partnerships with the Black Professionals in Tech Network, Women Who Code and Women in AI.
"One of our core principles is Seek Diversity because we know that an inclusive culture creates an environment of accountability, acceptance and belonging for our employees and fuels better experiences for our customers," said Sara Birmingham, Chief Human Resources Officer at Shutterstock. "We are thrilled to receive this recognition from the Human Rights Campaign, and we remain committed to celebrating the individual differences and diverse perspectives of our employees at Shutterstock."
