HRC Foundation Buying for Workplace Equality Guide
By Human Rights Campaign
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The Human Rights Campaign Foundation's Buying for Workplace Equality App is your
guide to brands and products from businesses that support LGBTQ
workplace equality — businesses that don’t discriminate based on
sexual orientation and gender identity, that provide benefits for LGBTQ
employees and their families and that respectfully market to or
recruit employees from the LGBTQ community.
Based on the HRC Foundation's Corporate Equality Index rating (www.hrc.org/cei),
businesses -- and their products -- are divided into red (brands that
receive our lowest workplace quality scores), yellow (brands that have
made some progress and receive moderate workplace equality scores) and
green (brands that receive our highest workplace equality scores)
categories to help consumers support businesses that have inclusive
LGBTQ workplace policies.
- Find thousands of LGBTQ-friendly businesses and their products;
search by shopping category or browse alphabetically.
- Browse distinct shopping categories like Food, Apparel, Household
Products and Banking & Finance.
- View detailed information about each business’ rating of
LGBTQ-inclusive workplace policies from the HRC Corporate Equality
- E-mail, Tweet or post Facebook status messages about your
favorite and least favorite brands to your friends and family.

Vote with your dollar
Thank you HRC for creating this great app. I have to say, some companies on the list surprised me and I'll change my shopping habits because this list.
The app could be easier to use; it's not the best design. But it gets the job done.
Parent company matching is buggy
In a quick scan of businesses "near me", I found at least 3 with blatant mis-matched parent companies. Brown Jug was matched to low ranking Dean Foods as a match for "Brown's Dairy". This has the potential to be very hurtful to local businesses.
I have emailed them about a few of these, so I'll revise my rating if they fix this.
