Wal-Mart Joining Corporate Surge to Protect LGBT Employees

Wal-Mart Joining Corporate Surge to Protect LGBT Employees | PinkieB.com | Gay and Lesbian Life | Scoop.it
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. added insurance coverage for transgender workers this year, joining more than 500 companies taking a bigger role in advancing the rights of LGBT employees in a competitive market for labor.
Matt Skallerud's insight:

Companies from Apple Inc. to Xerox Corp. are pushing to protect employee rights and improve gender equality as some legislative efforts have stalled. In 28 states, it’s still legal to fire a person for being gay, and President-elect Donald Trump has said he will rescind President Barack Obama’s executive orders, some of which aim at workplace diversity.

IBM just published a strong statement on how companies can do more to support their LGBT employees | PinkieB.com | Gay and Lesbian Life | Scoop.it

In the wake of the Orlando shooting, Gay Pride month has taken on a whole new meaning as people from all walks of life want to show support for the LGBT community. With that in mind, IBM's diversity chief Lindsay-Rae McIntyre just posted a blog that spells out all the ways that IBM is standing up for its LGBT workers in the US and around the world.

Matt Skallerud's insight:

"But even as we talk about the many steps forward, we realize that we as a global society have a long way to go. IBMers are incredibly proud of our company's long-standing commitment to equality. We will continue promoting and defending LGBT rights around the world. And we will also continue to foster and grow a shared corporate culture in which global diversity - including diversity of thought - remains central to our company and its values."
