Apple is a company that likes to have it’s public image (and internal culture) aligned closely with the fight for equality. Recently, Apple continued with this important fight by declaring support for the Equality Act of 2015, which would expand the Civil Rights Act of 1964 adding sexual orientation and gender identity to the legislation that outlaws discrimination based on race, color, religion, or national origin.
From the sauce, in a statement to the Human Rights campaign:
“At Apple we believe in equal treatment for everyone, regardless of where they come from, what they look like, how they worship or who they love. We fully support the expansion of legal protections as a matter of basic human dignity.
The Equality Act will ensure full federal equality for all LGBT Americans, including those who live in the 31 states that do not currently have non-discrimination legislation, protecting LBGT citizens from discrimination when seeking jobs, housing, public accommodations, education, and more.”
Apple is continuously and rigorously fighting for equality and anti-discrimination, especially in the workplace, and especially since Tim Cook has been CEO.
