We are celebrating achievements in promoting equality and inclusion for Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, and Transgender (LGBT) individuals.
Our goal is to recognize listed Canadian corporations that are embracing LGBT inclusion.
The LGBT Corporate Canadian Index (the “LGBT CCI”) aims to serve wealth management companies, investors,
government entities, academic institutions and LGBT associations who are interested in monitoring, supporting
or investing in Canadian corporations that have demonstrated a strong commitment towards supporting the LGBT community by taking quantifiable actions.
The LGBT CCI is the first-of-its-kind index in Canada. It focuses on LGBT inclusion from four different lenses:
- Corporate policies
- Corporate community involvement
- Corporate diversity and inclusion training and;
- Nomination of a Chief Diversity Officer.
Our index rating system and methodology is unique in that it encompasses several key factors, all of which are tangible and measurable, to determine whether or not a Canadian listed corporation can be included in the index.
We can all embrace the merits of LGBT CCI because it provides transparency around best practices as it pertains to corporate policies and corporate advocacy. It also serves leading and supporting corporations to actively promote
LGBT inclusion as part of their key initiatives and be an integral part of the way forward.
- Users of LGBT CCI include:
- Chief Diversity Officers
- Government entities and;
- Individuals and associations interested in promoting LGBT inclusion.
LGBT CCI strongly supports the fact that a business case exists for LGBT inclusion. As evidenced by numerous studies, diversity and inclusion strengthens a corporation's bottomline as it does society.
