LGBT Network Certified is a program that recognizes companies and organizations for their LGBT diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) efforts and community involvement in support of their employees, customers, and clients.
The Certified program utilizes four tiers of recognition. Each tier identifies simple, best-practice strategies for LGBT DEIB efforts. Best practices include both internal efforts for employees as well as external efforts for customers and clients, i.e. LGBT visuals displayed, supportive workplace policies, advertising to LGBT community, and others. The LGBT Network offers support and assistance to help companies and organizations improve their DEIB efforts so they can achieve the top tier of recognition – Tier 1 LGBT Network Certified. Companies and organizations seeking to become LGBT Network Certified should complete an application found below. There is no fee to become LGBT Network Certified.
Participating Certified companies and organizations will be recognized in a public listing on the LGBT Network website so LGBT consumers can see the companies and organizations involved, and subsequently utilize their services. LGBT Network Certified companies and organizations will receive both a digital “badge” and print certificate that they can use and display.
