OVERVIEW

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.

CRITERIA

The HRC Equidad CL survey assessed major Chilean businesses and multinational companies based on three core pilars of LGBTQ+ inclusion:

  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
