At our 2018 U.S. Summit, Out Leadership founder and principal Todd Sears introduced our Guidelines for Corporate Engagement on LGBT+ Equality, a resource for companies that wish to optimize their processes for engaging publicly on LGBT+ equality.
To write the guidelines, Out Leadership convened a working group that included representatives from member companies as well as from companies outside our network, and select representatives from LGBT+ advocacy groups. The group discussed various models that businesses have implemented to evaluate and respond to requests for action on LGBT+ equality; we then distilled conversations from the working group into a list of best practices.
An article based on the Guidelines, written by Sears and Matt Fouracre (Manager, Client Relations and Public Policy) has now been published in The Diversity Agenda: Lessons and Guidance from the Legal Profession, which includes articles from a variety of legal experts.
