In France, there are now 30 companies that have signed the LGBT commitment charter!

Sodexo France, AXA, and Thomson Reuters are the three new companies to sign this charter. They therefore undertake all to fight against discrimination of LGBT employees and promote diversity.

This charter was launched in 2013 by the association Autre Cercle who fight against discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation in the workplace and more generally against homophobia, lesbophobia and transphobia.

«The idea is to educate leaders and employees to avoid a climate of intimidation and hostility toward homosexual or trans* people,» said Catherine Tripon, spokeswoman for Autre Cercle.

A recent study in French companies showed that 6 out of 10 lesbians were discriminated in the last two years.
