Inclusive, diverse societies are better for business and better for economic growth.

Open For Business is a coalition of leading global companies dedicated to LGBT+ inclusion. Our task is to present the business rationale on global LGBT+ inclusion: successful, enterprising businesses thrive in diverse, inclusive societies and the spread of anti-LGBT+ policies runs counter to the interests of business and economic growth.



Our Coalition Partners

Our coalition partners share a deep-rooted commitment to diversity and inclusion in their own workplaces, and they are concerned about the spread of anti-LGBT+ policies in many countries in which they operate. By joining Open For Business, they have demonstrated that they are serious about taking action on LGBT+ inclusion globally.
