The DiversityInc Top 10 Companies for LGBT Employees

In compiling this list, we looked at best practices that create an inclusive workplace for LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) employees as well as relationships with LGBT nonprofits and public advocacy of inclusiveness, such as support for same-gender marriage and public statements opposing homophobic actions.  The best practices include:

  • Whether the company has an active LGBT employee resource group
  • Percentage of philanthropic endeavors aimed at LGBT nonprofits
  • Whether the company attempts to track the number of LGBT people in the workplace, including voluntary disclosure
  • Whether the corporate website features images and text of LGBT employees, customers or vendors
  • Whether the company certifies LGBT vendors with the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce
  • Percentage of procurement spent with certified LGBT vendors

The No. 1 company on this list is Wells Fargo for their deep commitment to internal inclusion and an understanding of the financial needs of LGBT customers.
