NEW YORK, Jan. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Yext, Inc. (NYSE: YEXT), the Search Experience Cloud company, today announced that it received a score of 100% on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation's 2020 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the nation's premier benchmarking survey measuring LGBTQ equality in the workplace.

"Yext is proud to have earned a 100% on the Corporate Equality Index and the distinction of Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality," said Brian "Skip" Schipper, Chief People Officer at Yext. "Yexters who identify as LGBTQ reflect the diversity of the customers and communities we serve and support.
