PRESS RELEASE: Manila, Philippines (November 2018)

“ZERO”: Filipino Companies Flunk in the Country’s First-Ever SOGIE Diversity and Inclusiveness Index
Philippine LGBT Chamber of Commerce launches its #ZEROto100PH campaign to educate companies on SOGIE

November 7, 2018: Manila, Philippines — Filipino companies have failed dismally in the country’s first-ever Philippine Corporate SOGIE (Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity & Expression) Diversity and Inclusiveness Index, a study pioneered by the Philippine LGBT Chamber of Commerce, an organization which champions the LGBT contribution in Philippine business.

The study aims to establish a quantitative baseline SOGIE Corporate Diversity and Inclusiveness Index across the top corporations as well as other small and medium enterprises in the Philippines.

ZERO – No Filipino corporation that was part of the study had SOGIE-Diversity policies. The #LGBTchamber wishes to change that for 2019 with their #ZEROto100PH program — where the goal is to institute and help create SOGIE Diversity policies in at least 100 Filipino corporations by the end of 2019.
