Equality, Every Day

Is visibility important? Does speaking up matter?
While progress has certainly been made, discrimination, fear and hate still exist in places where we live and work. On behalf of our employees and customers around the world, we will continue to stand for equality.
Whether it’s marching together in one of the many Pride celebrations around the world each year or through new efforts such as donating proceeds from Gap brand’s Pride t-shirts to the UN Foundation’s Free & Equal awareness campaign and signing on to a new set of global anti-discrimination standards, we’re proud to show up in and with our LGBTQ communities every day.
And today we’re honored to receive a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign 2018 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey and report on employer policies and practices related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) workplace equality. This is the 13th consecutive year that Gap Inc. has earned 100%.
From our workplaces to our stores, everyone is welcome.
