How to Join

Interested in joining the coalition?

If you work for a multinational company that is committed to LGBT+ inclusion, we would love to discuss having your company join our coalition. Please email Drew Keller, our Global Program Director, at for more information.

There are many ways that our coalition partners see value in being a part of Open For Business:

  • We enable companies to take a coherent global position on LGBT+ inclusion. In countries with anti-LGBT+ policies, companies are sometimes forced to take positions that are at odds with their global policies and values. Supporting Open For Business gives partners a clear global public position and concrete examples of how they are advancing LGBT+ inclusion in a truly global manner.

  • We allow companies to safely begin conversations on LGBT+ inclusion in countries where it is a difficult topic. Recently, coalition partners have seen their in-country leadership teams focus on LGBT+ inclusion for the first time in India, Kenya, Singapore, and other countries due to our Local Influencer Program.

  • Our coalition partners position themselves as thought leaders on the economic and business case for LGBT+ inclusion. We regularly release research at high-profile events, such as Davos, that gives our coalition partners a platform on the global stage.
