PFLAG // Blog // PFLAG Nashville Co-Chair HG Stovall’s “Letter to the Editor” – Big Companies Work to Ensure Equality

November 18th, 2006 | Posted by PFLAG

As seen in The Tennessean

To the Editor:

Thanks to The Tennessean and Naomi Snyder, who is, as we say in the South, right smack on target with her Nov. 15 article, “Big Midstate employers outpace government in same-sex benefits.”

This idea is no secret to successful businesses. Dell and Cingular, who also have operations here, offer the same benefit(s) to their employees. Darden Restaurants, parent of Olive Garden and Red Lobster, is also a member of the ever-increasing ranks.

There has been in recent years, as noted, a dramatic increase in companies choosing to promote equality in the workplace. It is, perhaps, most important to note that this movement is most prevalent in Fortune 500 companies—who obviously know exactly what they are doing.

Kudos to Gannett and all the other organizations (and citizens) in Middle Tennessee who stand against discrimination.
