Most recent reports: 2021 report, 2020 report, 2019 report, 2018 report


Since its inception in 2016, the pioneering HRC Equidad MX: Global Workplace Equality Program has experienced outstanding success in promoting LGBTQ equality and inclusion among Mexican businesses and corporations. The initiative was designed to help employers become LGBTQ-inclusive by assessing corporate practices and policies through our annual survey. The results of the latest HRC Equidad MX Report attest to the unprecedented growth of the program; this year, a record number of companies were recognized with the HRC Foundation's designation of “Best Places to Work for the LGBTQ Equality” or Mejores Lugares para Trabajar LGBT reflecting their ongoing commitment to LGBTQ equality and adoption of vital policies for LGBTQ employees.

The Mexico-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 Latin America which led to the creation of HRC Equidad CL, a second workplace equality program to promote workplace inclusion in Chile.

In a year full of unprecedented challenges, amidst a global pandemic, the steadfast commitment to LGBT workplace inclusion in Mexico is truly inspiring. The entire Human Rights Campaign community is extremely proud to witness the remarkable progress and record number of businesses in Mexico committed to providing inclusive workplaces where LGBT workers can not only thrive, but achieve their full potential while being exactly who they are.”

Alphonso David, HRC President
