Out Leadership is proud to share the second year of its LGBTQ+ Business Climate Index for the 50 U.S. States for 2020.
This index shares both the full landscape of the state of LGBTQ+ equality in all 50 States and showcases the largest movers since last year, highlighting states that significantly improved their score or states whose scores decreased. These briefs and metrics are apolitical, data-focused and are meant to connect the dots between LGBTQ+ inclusion and equality and bottom-line impact. This year more than ever it is important for us to focus on the impact of policy on equality. During this COVID-19 crisis, LGBTQ+ population is disproportionately exposed, and needs protection more than ever. We, at Out Leadership, are focused on growing equality during this time and calling upon businesses to double down on inclusion during this crisis.
