IBM has always been one of the most LGBT-supporting company, actively opposing discrimination and propagating equality, diversity and acceptance. And their new rainbow logo only confirmed it. Chief Diversity Officer, Lindsay-Rae McIntyre, says that the new logo is devoted to the employees, current and future, in order to show them that they are all welcomed and equal, and discrimination of any kind to anyone is radically opposed.
The CDO added that the company is one of the first to include sexual orientation as part of their Equal Opportunity policy, which extends domestic partner benefits to gay and lesbian employees in the U.S., almost two decades ago. Today, the company offer a variety of benefits in 53 countries to same-gender domestic partners or spouses.
