The Human Rights Campaign has awarded Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) its
highest rating of 100 in the 2019 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) for the
fourth consecutive year – naming the company one of the "Best Places to
Work for LGBTQ Equality."

The 2019 CEI evaluates LGBTQ-related policies and practices, including
non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits,
transgender-inclusive healthcare benefits, competency programs and
public engagement with the LGBTQ community.

Inclusion,
one of Harris' core values, emphasizes that the company's success comes
from diverse ideas and talent working together to achieve goals. Harris
benefits cover same-sex spouses and domestic partners, and company
policies prohibit discrimination in all forms. The company promotes a
culture where everyone can thrive by promoting inclusive recruiting,
professional development and community engagement. Among its active
employee resource groups is PRIDE, which hosts regular internal and
external events, including involvement in local pride parades the
company sponsors.

"We are honored to receive this recognition four years in a row and are
committed to continuing and evolving the practices that led to this
achievement," said William M. Brown, chairman, president and CEO. "I am
proud that Harris is a place where everyone is treated with respect and
courtesy, and has every opportunity to succeed."

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. For more information on the 2019
