LGBTQ+ Corporate Social Responsibility

An employer's nondiscrimination policies should not be limited to human resources or diversity and inclusion. The CEI’s Corporate Social Responsibility criteria ensure that sexual orientation and gender identity protections apply to those standards that businesses require their vendors or suppliers to adhere to, as well as recipients of their philanthropic funds.

To receive credit in Criteria 3d (5 points):

  • Existing supplier/vendor non-discrimination standards must include "sexual orientation" and "gender identity," alongside other protected categories AND;
  • Employer must have giving guidelines that prohibit philanthropic support of non-religious organizations with an explicit policy of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and/or gender identity
