ExxonMobil response re alleged connections with organizations that engage in anti-LGBT activities
While the report itself refers generally to its own research and does not specify an allegation against ExxonMobil, it appears the issue may involve the company’s position on shareholder resolutions in 2010 and 2011. The company’s response to those resolutions, as contained in our proxy statements, is as follows:ExxonMobil is committed to having a workplace that facilitates the maximum contribution from all of our employees. While there are many factors that are important to creating this type of environment, one of the most significant is having a workplace that is free from any form of harassment or discrimination.The Board has reviewed in detail ExxonMobil's existing global policies that prohibit all forms of discrimination, including those based on sexual orientation and gender identity, in any Company workplace, anywhere in the world. In fact, ExxonMobil's policies go beyond the law and prohibit any form of discrimination. Based on these existing all-inclusive, zero-tolerance policies, the Board believes the proposal is unnecessary.
