Number of Mexican employers explicitly supporting LGBT+ workplace inclusion doubles

In its second year, the Human Rights Campaign’s Equidad MX: Programa Global de Equidad Laboral assessment gave 69 Mexican employers the designation of “Best Place to Work for the LGBT Community.” Last year’s inaugural program included 32 major employers. The designation is based on non-discrimination policies, employee resource groups and diversity and inclusion programs, and public engagements supporting LGBT+ inclusion.

“We are proud to witness the growth of LGBT-inclusive businesses throughout Mexico. This year’s honorees keenly understand that the economy of the future is built with the diverse talent of today, and that LGBT inclusion is key to attracting and retaining the best workforce,” said Deena Fidas, HRC Director of HRC Equidad MX and HRC Foundation’s Workplace Equality Program. “Mexican multinational companies have enormous economies and employ thousands of people. This gives them the ability to influence change on this issue in a unique way, and we are delighted to recognize them for this commitment.”
