Businesses Raise Their Voice in Support of Equality for All
Businesses can be important voice for positive social impact in their communities as well as a key economic driver. In 2017, major employers and small business owners in Texas spoke out against proposals that would lead to discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people and ultimately hurt the economy in Texas. They talked about the importance of a welcoming Texas brand in their efforts to recruit the best and brightest. They highlighted the potential damage that could be caused to tourism and corporate relocations. They voiced support for diversity and inclusivity. And these businesses were heard—in every corner of the state, including at the state Capitol in Austin.
