United supports federal Equality Act

By The Hub team

At United, we recognize, embrace and celebrate the differences that make our customers and employees unique. We're committed to creating an inclusive work environment while contributing to the diverse communities we serve. As a part of this mission, we believe it's important to support the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community by promoting inclusive policies and practices.

That is why United recently joined the Business Coalition for the Equality Act, organized by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC). The Equality Act is legislation pending in the U.S. Congress that would add clear, comprehensive non-discrimination protections for LGBT people to U.S. civil rights laws. The bill is expected to be voted on by the U.S. House of Representatives next month, and we are proud to support the Equality Act in advance of this important debate.

"United is proud to take a leadership role within the business community in support of LGBT nondiscrimination legislation," said EVP and Chief Administrative Officer Brett Hart. "This is one more way we can support all the talented employees who make United an inclusive place to work, just as we remain committed to serving the diverse customers who fly with us each and every day."
