2016 Affinity Top Corp IconAffinity Inc Magazine is committed to the development and success of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender businesses and employees. In step with that commitment is an emphasis on the companies in corporate America that have made diverse and inclusive workplaces and supply chains a matter of policy. Once a year, we honor those companies that are fostering economic stability in the LGBT community and ensuring the fair treatment of LGBT employees, suppliers, consumers and partners. These companies are Affinity Inc Magazine’s Top Corporations for LGBT Economic Empowerment.

This year, the selected 100 top corporations established a multifaceted and obvious commitment to the LGBT community and value the contributions of LGBT employees, suppliers and customers. Not only do they ensure LGBT equality internally, but also go above and beyond to externally support LGBT equality. Their core values impact the people and communities they serve.

Affinity Inc Magazine’s Top Corporations for LGBT Economic Empowerment scored 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s recently released 2016 Corporate Equality Index and have active LGBT employee resource groups or resources set aside for employees to form an ERG. All have demonstrated a vigorous dedication to bringing LGBT-owned businesses into their supply chains and are active with LGBT business organizations.

These companies have taken significant steps toward enabling true financial empowerment to help LGBT individuals bring about economic change for themselves. Affinity Inc Magazine salutes these companies and looks forward to telling their stories in 2016 — from their support of LGBT entrepreneurs to highlights of their events and best practices and profiles of their movers and shakers.
