L’Oréal has announced its support for the UN Global LGBTI Standards of Conduct for Business... 

“L’Oréal is particularly vigilant on issues related to the promotion of inclusion in the workplace and welcomes the UN Global LGBTI Standards of Conduct for Business as they are useful and practical frameworks, which will help to accelerate change,” said the owner of Lancôme and Maybelline in a statement. 

The guidelines are designed to tackle discrimination against lesbian, gay, bi, trans and intersex people based on the principle that business can foster diversity and promote a culture of respect and equality both at work and in the wider communities where they operate. “If we are to achieve faster global progress towards equality for lesbian, gay, bi, trans and intersex people, businesses will not only have to meet their human rights responsibilities, they must become active agents of change,” said Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, UN Commissioner for Human Rights.
