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 Program Director, at [email protected] 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.
