P&G is proud to have been named by The National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC), the business voice of the LGBT community, in collaboration with its partners in the National Business Inclusion Consortium (NBIC), as a Best-of-the-Best corporation in America for our commitment to diversity and inclusion across all communities.
“The Best-of-the-Best designation honors corporations for their commitment to America’s diverse employees and business owners, which includes LGBT, people of color, women, and people with disabilities,” said NGLCC Co-Founder and President Justin Nelson. “This designation is highly competitive and is bestowed only to corporations that we see constantly striving to strengthen and celebrate diversity. These corporations being honored are true leaders in ongoing global commitments to create a better future for all diverse communities in business.”
P&G was recognized during the event specifically for our Love Over Bias commercial, the newest installment of our award-winning “Thank You, Mom” campaign. The film imagines what the world could be if we all saw each other through a mom’s eyes. More about this critically-acclaimed ad, as well as a link to view the short film, can be found here.
NGLCC formed the National Business Inclusion Consortium in 2011, and its members represent a total of over $9 trillion in annual economic strength along with significant contributions to the marketplace and workplace.
