What is Being a Good Corporate Citizen?

Although the Workplace Project monitors employers’ contributions to anti-LGBTQ+ ballot measures and organizations whose primary mission includes anti-LGBTQ+ advocacy, it cannot capture a complete picture of a business’s social responsibility. Our mission is not to create an across-the-board assessment of any corporation’s actions, but we do recognize that many social justice issues beyond workplace practices for LGBTQ+ workers may be important to employers, employees, and consumers.


Tracking political contributions


Center for Responsive Politics is the nation's premier research group tracking money in U.S. politics and its effect on elections and public policy. Nonpartisan, independent and nonprofit, the organization aims to create a more educated voter, an involved citizenry and a more transparent and responsive government.


MAPLight.org connects money and votes by bringing together, in one website, the money given to politicians with each politician's votes to make patterns of money and influence more transparent.

Gauging Social Responsibility


CRM’s annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens List is known as the world’s top corporate responsibility ranking based on publicly-available information and recognized by PR Week as one of America’s top three most-important business rankings. Data in each category is of two types: true/false or numerical. “True” counts as a positive value, “False” counts as a negative value, and “no answer” counts as neutral. Numerical values are compared with all of the companies’ other numerical answers in order to generate a ranking.
