The LGBTQ+ Corporate Citizen – A Framework for Emerging Best Practices in Allyship

Produced by the HRC Foundation

Building on decades of work with businesses in the fight for LGBTQ+ equality, the Human Rights Campaign’s first-ever Corporate Citizenship Report examines how corporations can work across all of their business operations to advance the inclusion, safety and flourishing of LGBTQ+ people within and outside their organizations.

In a challenging and dangerous political and cultural landscape for LGBTQ+ people, businesses are uniquely positioned to live out their stated values – and benefit their bottom lines – by activating their core business operations in service of inclusion and belonging.

HRC has identified six pillars of business operations where businesses can make significant impacts. This report explores how businesses can lean into these pillars, identifying examples and leading practices to inspire even more businesses to step in:

  • Workforce

  • Supply Chain

  • Products & Services

  • Marketing

  • Corporate Philanthropy

  • Advocacy & Political Engagement

This report is the first of its kind. It is not a scorecard, as this is a fast-moving and evolving field of inquiry. HRC is committed to sharing these insights with the business community and to partnering with business leaders as they implement these strategies and develop their own innovations and experimentations across the six pillars.
