To mark WorldPride and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, center director Kenji Yoshino and executive director David Glasgow have written a discussion paper on how companies can step up their efforts to advance LGBT+ rights in anti-LGBT+ countries, Opening Up The World: How Multinational Organizations Can Ascend the Maturity Curve on LGBT+ Rights.

Based on interviews with 30 leaders and employees across five continents from three multinational organizations—Dow, EY, and Microsoft—the paper examines how companies can advance from a "When in Rome" model (in which they follow local norms) to an "Embassy" model (in which they focus on internal LGBT+ inclusion), and finally to an "Advocate" model (in which they strive to influence local law and culture).

Read the paper.
