Commitment by

Human Rights Campaign

In 2015, the Human Rights Campaign committed to creating, housing, and engaging the Business Coalition for Global Workplace Fairness. Launching with partners AT&T, CA Technologies, The Coca-Cola Company, Google, Microsoft Corp., Procter & Gamble, and Symantec Corporation, this new consortium of global companies will established workplace non-discrimination protections for the LGBT community worldwide. In 2002, HRC launched the world’s first LGBT corporate benchmarking report, the Corporate Equality Index (CEI). It now includes 800 major employers and recognizes the equality and inclusion efforts of private sector, often significantly ahead of global lawmakers. HRC will add a mandate on globalizing LGBT protections to the CEI, holding companies accountable to standards of global practice. In support of this, the coalition will engage a total of 50 companies over the next two years, and will meet regularly to share approaches to achieving global workplace inclusion, address challenges, strategize on how to engage on-the-ground resources to better serve their employees in-country, and offer communal public commitments to standards of non-discrimination. HRC will showcase this commitment and house the resources that facilitate the exchange of private sector learning and information, bolstering in-country advocacy and economic opportunity for the LGBT community worldwide.
