For more than two decades, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation has worked closely with corporate and civil society leaders, multinationals, corporations and stakeholders committed to promote the best policies and practices for LGBTQ+ employees nationwide. The HRC Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the premier benchmarking tool on corporate policies, practices and benefits pertinent to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer employees that has fundamentally changed the way in which diversity and inclusion is implemented among top employers across the country.

Frequently Asked Questions


As the nation’s driving force for LGBTQ+ workplace inclusion, the success and trajectory of the CEI served as an inspiration to expand the mission and vision of the Foundation's Workplace Equality Program.

In 2016 and 2018, HRC translated its long-standing experience and expertise to establish two in-country programs designed to promote LGBTQ+ workplace inclusion adapted to the social and cultural context of Mexico and Chile respectively. In 2021, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation expanded its LGBTQ+ workplace inclusion efforts in Latin America to include Argentina and Brazil.

Our Global Workplace Equality Programs were established to grow and promote LGBTQ+ inclusion among companies and U.S. multinationals in Latin America and recognize businesses with the HRC Foundation's designation of “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality” or "Mejores Lugares Para Trabajar LGBTQ+" for their efforts to become inclusive workplaces.

Through HRC Equidad MX, CL, AR, and Equidade BR, the HRC Foundation promotes the adoption of critical practices and policies that reflect the employer’s commitment to LGBTQ+ equality.

#workingpositively Campaign

Building on the success of the June 2019 German campaign that saw 100+ companies sign a declaration committing to end workplace discrimination against employees living with HIV, IBM & SAP worked together with the Human Rights Campaign Foundation to extend the #workingpositively global campaign to the U.S. in 2020. Nearly four years later, we have seen continued commitment from our numerous corporate members.

The #workingpositively Pledge on behalf of employees living with HIV asks companies to commit to creating safe, supportive and inclusive spaces for people living with HIV and other chronic illnesses. Signatories to the pledge commit to:

fight stigma and promote open, respectful cooperation for people living with HIV and other chronic illnesses.

welcome employees living with HIV who can be open about their HIV status without fear of reprisal.

create opportunities for employees to engage with HIV services and community-based organizations.

honor privacy and never demand an HIV test during company medical examinations or ask an employee to disclose their HIV status.

promote my commitment internally with our employees and publicly share my organization’s commitment on social media.

TENT Partnership for Refugees

At the North American Business Summit on LGBTQ Refugees in 2020, the Human Rights Campaign and Tent called on companies to support LGBTQ+ refugees. The collaboration of these two organizations, alongside the commitment of trailblazing companies in the international workforce, has led to the successful placement of over one thousand refugees in mentor/ mentee relationships in their desired fields of work.

Learn more about our work with Tent via the link above.
