A fact-finding hearing in an Illinois investigation Tuesday was the first step toward uncovering whether the oil and gas giant's nondiscrimination policies actually include sexual orientation and gender identity.
Meanwhile, ExxonMobil's refusal to enact nondiscrimination protections demonstrates the need for a presidential order banning anti-LGBT discrimination by federal contractors, say the authors of a new report on workplace bias.
Shareholders of the oil giant voted against adding nondiscrimination protections for LGBT employees by a margin of 81% to 19%.
Some 80% of shareholders voted against adding sexual orientation and gender identity to the company's anti-discrimination policy.
Evolve, the Pulitzer Prize-winning newspaper says to ExxonMobil.
Shareholders and leaders of ExxonMobil, recently named to the top position on the Fortune 500, has continuously voted against introducing LGBT-inclusive antidiscrimination policies. Will that finally change this May?
In January, ExxonMobil wrote to the SEC to argue that the company’s employment policies already conformed.
More ExxonMobil shareholders than ever voted to support a resolution to add sexual orientation and gender identity as categories to the company's nondiscrimination policy, though they were unable to win a full majority.
