The first-ever Workplace Ally Challenge has concluded, and Affinity Inc Magazine celebrated with the winners on Sat, July 26 in San Francisco.
Eight Fortune 500 companies from around the country participated in this year’s inaugural Challenge, working to engage as many allies as possible in building inclusive workplaces between January and June. Collectively, they activated nearly 2,000 professionals through 69 ally engagement activities. In the space of just 6 months, they measurably increased both the LGBT awareness and the inclusiveness of workplace culture at their organizations – by 18% and 10%, respectively.
And 3 companies went above and beyond, earning the top awards in the Challenge: 1st Place Winner PG&E (pictured below with award); 2nd Place and 3rd Place were awarded to ConAgra Foods and Southern California Edison respectively.
