In 2021, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation expanded its LGBTQ+ workplace inclusion efforts in Latin America to include Brazil. Our Global Workplace Equality Programs were established to grow and promote LGBTQ+ inclusion among national and U.S. multinational companies in Latin America and recognize businesses with the HRC Foundation's designation of “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality” or Melhores Empresas Para Pessoas LGBTQ+ Trabalharem for their efforts to become inclusive workplaces.

In partnership with Instituto Mais Diversidade and Forum de Empresas de Direitos LGBTQIA+, the Global Workplace Equality team built upon the existing HRC Equidad MX and HRC Equidad CL to establish Equidade Brazil. HRC Equidade BR will further recognize employers in Latin America who have demonstrated a commitment to LGBTQ+ equality by adopting crucial LGBTQ+ inclusive policies and practices for their employees.
