Shop for Equality this Holiday Season: New HRC Foundation Buyer’s Guide Released
December 20, 2013 by Carolyn Simon, Deputy Director of Digital Media
The HRC Foundation has just released the newest version of its popular shopping guide, Buying for Workplace Equality 2014.
The guide rates hundreds of businesses on their treatment of LGBT employees. Whether you are buying a cup of coffee, renovating your home, or looking for the perfect gift, by supporting businesses that support workplace equality you send a powerful message that LGBT inclusion is good for the bottom line.
We hope that you will use this guide as one component when determining if a business’s social practices make it worthy of your dollars this holiday season.
The guide uses the same set of criteria as the Corporate Equality Index, which was released earlier this month. This record-setting year for the CEI shows 90 percent of large companies and two-thirds of Fortune 500 companies and corporation offer benefits to same-sex domestic partners of employees, but also an historic number of corporations received top billing on the index.
