The HRC Foundation expanded its LGBTQ workplace inclusion efforts in the region by partnering with Fundación Iguales — Chile's largest LGBTQ advocacy group in 2018. The HRC Equidad CL: Global Workplace Equality Program was established to grow and promote LGBTQ inclusion among Chilean companies and U.S. multinationals in Chile and recognizes businesses with the HRC Foundation's designation of “Best Places to Work for the LGBTQ Equality” or Mejores Lugares Para Trabajar LGBT for their efforts to become inclusive workplaces. The Chilean-based initiative, inspired by HRC's annual Corporate Equality Index (CEI) — the national benchmarking tool on corporate LGBTQ-inclusive policies and practices — is HRC's first in-country program in South America and the second in Latin America following the successful model of HRC Equidad MX in Mexico.

This report highlights those major employers in Chile who have shown a substantial commitment to establishing LGBT-inclusive policies and practices in their workplace. Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees have as much to offer as any of their colleagues and deserve to be welcomed, valued and supported as their authentic selves to ensure that they succeed. Further, they can provide critical insights to companies as they develop strategies to succeed in diverse markets. Creating an inclusive environment for all employees is not only good for company morale, it is good for the bottomline.”

Alphonso David, HRC President

  1. Adoption of non-discrimination policies
  2. Creation of employee resource groups or diversity and inclusion councils
  3. Engagement in public activities to support LGBTQ inclusion
