FleishmanHillard Earns Top Rating in 2022 Human Rights Campaign Equidad MX Report, Chosen as a “Best LGBTQ+ Workplace”
ST. LOUIS, January 12, 2022 — FleishmanHillard earned the top score of 100 again on this year’s Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Equidad MX: Global Program for Labor Equity report, leading to the agency being named a 2022 “Best LGBTQ+ Workplace.”
The HRC Equidad MX program is designed after HRC’s Corporate Equality Index — the LGBTQ+ workplace equality benchmarking survey in the U.S. To obtain a score of 100, companies must demonstrate established policies, programs and procedures that ensure fairness to LGBTQ+ people in the workplace. This year’s report assessed major businesses in Mexico on three core pillars of LGBTQ+ inclusion: 1) adoption of nondiscrimination policies, 2) creation of employee resource groups or diversity and inclusion councils, and 3) engagement in public activities to support LGBT inclusion.
This year, FleishmanHillard joins the ranks of 242 major employers who have a nationwide reach across Mexico. This recognition speaks to the agency’s ambition to become the most inclusive communications agency in the world.
“Inclusive workplaces help morale and help a business’s bottom line,” said Keisha Williams, director, HRC Foundation’s Workplace Equality Program. “When employers want to attract and retain the best workforce, everyone wins. It’s not only the right thing to do, it’s the best business decision. We celebrate this year’s honorees for showing the way forward in adopting workplace policies and practices to foster LGBTQ+ inclusion across Mexico.”
