Argentinian LGBTQ Workplace Inclusion

By Charlotte Robinson, July 21, 2022

HRC in partnership with Instituto de Políticas Públicas LGBT released its first annual ‘HRC Equidad AR: Global Workplace Equality Program’ report. This program stands alongside leading South American benchmarking surveys completed in Mexico, Chile & Brazil. These surveys share information about employers who have demonstrated a commitment to LGBTQ equality by adopting crucial LGBTQ-inclusive policies & practices for their employees. This year 53 Argentinian companies participated & 22 earned top marks for their efforts to promote LGBTQ workplace inclusion. RaShawn Hawkins, HRC Workplace Equality Director stated, “In its inaugural year, Equidad Argentina has collaborated with & challenged Argentinian employers to create better & more inclusive workplaces for LGBTQ+ employees. Workplaces in Argentina & around the world understand the importance of an LGBTQ+ workplace & that it is not only great for retention & recruitment but is the right thing to do for their employees. These 53 companies are taking a stand for equity & inclusion to make a difference in the lives of Argentinian employees, consumers & a society that values all LGBTQ+ people.” The 2022 HRC Equidad AR report evaluated Argentinian businesses & corporations based on three core pillars of LGBTQ+ workplace inclusion: 1) Adoption of nondiscrimination policies; 2) Creation of employee resource groups or diversity & inclusion councils & 3) Engagement in public activities to support LGBTQ+ inclusion. HRC Foundation is leading the advancement of LGBTQ workplace inclusion & equality across the U.S., Mexico, Argentina, Brazil & Chile impacting more than 39 million workers worldwide. The Human Rights Campaign Foundation is the educational arm of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve LGBTQ people.
