Freedom to Work has launched a Change.org petition targeting ExxonMobil for its abysmal lack of protections for LGBT employees. Next week, New York state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli will bring a shareholder resolution to Exxon’s board meeting adding policies that prevent employees from workplace discrimination based on their sexual orientation and gender identity, despite an attempt by the company’s attempt to block the proposal. The petition parallels pressure on President Obama to sign an executive order instituting similar protections for the employees of all federal contractors.
