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.
The HRC Equidad MX suvery assessed major Mexican businesses and multinational companies based on three core pilars of LGBTQ inclusion:
2021 Virtual Launch, Beck Bailey and Milagros Chirinos
2020 Report Launch
2019 Report Launch
2018 Launch, Martha Debayle and HRC Partner Francisco Robledo
In 2016, the HRC Foundation partnered with Alianza por la Inclusión y Diversidad Laboral (ADIL) to establish the HRC Equidad MX and grow LGBTQ workplace inclusion Through HRC Equidad MX and Equidad MX Business Council, the HRC Foundation continues to work with corporate and civil society leaders to expand its workplace inclusion efforts across the country.
