The overwhelming majority of our honourees are among the Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality as recognised by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation‘s recently released 2018 Corporate Equality Index. Each organisation has active LGBTQ employee resource groups or resources set aside for employees to form an ERG. All are active corporate partners of the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce®.

“This year’s Excellence Award winners have demonstrated a vigorous dedication to bringing LGBTQ-owned businesses into their supply chains,” said Robin Dillard, Founder, Business Equality Network. “These organizations are on the front line of business equality along with a host of LGBTQ business-focused organizations. Their advocacy as well as their visible, vocal and financial commitment to equality contributes to economic stability within the LGBTQ community.”
