WTW is committed to creating an inclusive work environment where everyone is heard, respected, and valued for who they are. The company believes that building diverse teams helps to make better decisions, be more creative, and improve WTW's ability to overcome complex problems.

WTW is recognized by HRC Equidad Mexico as one of the Best Places to Work for the LGBTQ+ Equality. This award represents WTW's inclusive environment, where everyone is welcomed and valued.

Helping employers to become LGBTQ+ inclusive

HRC's Equidad Mexico's Report is a first-of-its-kind assessment designed to increase LGBTQ+ inclusion in workplaces across Mexico. Since its inception in 2016, the pioneering HRC Equidad MX: Global Workplace Equality Program has experienced outstanding success in promoting LGBTQ+ equality and inclusion among Mexican businesses and corporations. The initiative was designed to help employers become LGBTQ+ inclusive by assessing corporate practices and policies through its annual survey.

The results of the HRC Equidad MX Report attest to the unprecedented growth of the program; a record number of companies were recognized with the HRC Foundation's designation of Best Places to Work for the LGBTQ+ Equality or Mejores Lugares para Trabajar LGBT, reflecting their ongoing commitment to LGBTQ+ equality and adoption of vital policies for LGBTQ+ employees.

The Mexico-based initiative, inspired by HRC's annual Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the national leading benchmarking tool on corporate LGBTQ+ inclusive policies and practices, is HRC's first in-country program in Latin America which led to the creation of HRC Equidad CL and HRC Equidad AR, as well as HRC Equidade BR, additional workplace equality programs to promote workplace inclusion in Chile, Argentina and Brazil.

A commitment to LGBTQ+ inclusion

In the sixth edition of HRC Equidad MX, 252 companies earned a score of 100. In addition to the commitment of companies that have participated in previous years, this year 32 new companies have participated. 87 participating companies are on the list of Las 500 Empresas Expansión 2022, and of these 87, 76 scored a 100 on the report. The number of people who benefited from the program grew from approximately 1.2 million to 1.4 million, showing a 15 per cent growth.

The HRC Equidad MX survey assessed major Mexican businesses and multinational companies based on four core pillars of LGBTQ+ inclusion:

  • adoption of non-discrimination policies
  • creation of employee resource groups or diversity and inclusion councils
  • LGBTQ+ training and education
  • engagement in public activities to support LGBTQ+ inclusion
