While the SCOTUS ruling marked a major advancement for LGBTQ+ equality, there is still work to be done to ensure every workplace has inclusive policies and practices in place. Non-discrimination policies, benefits and other practices that include LGBTQ+ workers are essential for businesses as they compete for talent and customers. Through pioneering tools like the Corporate Equality Index, HRC works to provide employers the resources they need to improve and promote fairness in the workplace.
