Ads vs. Action: LGBTQ+ Equality

So many companies talk about their commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion – but it's often hard to really understand the culture of a business from the outside.

When it comes to LGBTQ+ equality and inculsion – a critical component of the Human-Powered Businesss – the Human Rights Campaign makes it easy.

HRC's Corporate Equality Index is the national benchmarking tool on corporate policies, practices and benefits relevant to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer employees. Using their simple search tool, you can view thousands of businesses and see how they stack up in supporting equitable, inclusive workplaces for LGBTQ+ people.


When it comes to voting with our dollars, we can all choose to buy products or services from companies willing to open themselves up to HRC's rating system – especially those that have achieved the highest ratings. We encourage you to check out HRC's Corporate Equality Index and use it to help guide your purchasing or employment decisions! (Exciting news: HRC will begin assessing whether or not companies make political contributions that support for anti-LGBTQ+ policies as part of their ratings starting next year!)

New Belgium is proud to be the very first craft brewery recognized as one of the Best Places to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality by the HRC’s Corporate Equality Index, with a perfect score of 100. In addition to offering equal spousal and partner health care, our onsite physician in Fort Collins is trained in transgender medicine and healthcare, and we first started offering health benefits to domestic partners in the 1990s. You can learn more about New Belgium's decades-long commitment to the LGBTQ+ community here.
