Equality Means Business was formed to spotlight major employers in Florida that have adopted comprehensive non-discrimination polices and have demonstrated their commitment to valuing and pro-actively including all employees.
Our goal is to improve Florida’s national and international reputation as a welcoming and inclusive place to live, work and visit.
By highlighting employers who have respect for diversity as a core value, we will encourage and provide resources to Florida employers who understand that diversity brings the skills, perspective and other assets that are essential to establishing a competitive workforce.
Our Advisory Council is made up of companies and individuals who are highly respected for their commitment to creating a safe and productive workplace for all individuals including providing protection regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity.
We believe honoring those companies that set the standard with comprehensive policies is the best way to encourage others to promote inclusivity and to strengthen Florida’s reputation in recruiting and retaining a talented workforce.
