CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Receptions celebrating the launch of a new multi-state LGBT business equality campaign will be held today in Charlotte, Raleigh, N.C. and Columbia, S.C.
Equality North Carolina, South Carolina Equality and Equality Virginia have come together for their new “Equality Means Business” campaign. They hope to move the needle on promoting and strengthening LGBT-friendly businesses and workplace protections and policies.
Their campaign is also complemented by a campaign launched this week by the Charlotte Business Guild, which hopes to promote more inclusive policies, workplace trainings and support from local businesses. The Guild is also partnering with Equality North Carolina and other organizations. In May, the Guild will release findings from its ongoing Charlotte Area Business Equality Index.
