Constellation is committed to ensuring the company attracts and retains employees that reflect the consumers we serve and communities in which the company operates.

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation is the educational arm of America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual transgender and queer people. HRC envisions a world where LGBTQ people are embraced as full members of society at home, at work and in every community.
