Equality Means Business


Equality Means Business is a coordinated multi-state campaign with Equality North Carolina and Equality Virginia designed to showcase businesses that know how important LGBT employees and customers are to their success in a modern economy.

In today’s economy, the majority of businesses know that opening their doors to LGBT clients and customers as well as ensuring their LGBT employees are not discriminated against is not only the right thing to do, but is also good for business.  With the goals of improving each state’s reputation as a welcoming place to live, work, and visit - as well as improving the lives of the more than 500,000 LGBT people who call these states home – Equality Means Business recognizes businesses that have policies to protect their LGBT employees from discrimination and have also pledged to welcome LGBT customers and clients.
