• A group of employees of The Clorox Company has joined together to send a message of hope to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) youth, who studies show are disproportionately impacted by bullying and suicide.

The employees produced a video in support of the It Gets Better Project, a worldwide movement to show young GLBT people the levels of happiness and acceptance they can reach by persevering through their teen years.

“No one should have to endure bullying and violence,” said SVP-chief innovation officer Wayne Delker, who serves as executive sponsor of Clorox Pride, the employee resource group (ERG) for GLBT employees and their advocates. “This video is a message of hope from Clorox employees who are living proof that, as tough as life may seem at times, it really does get better. One day you’ll be able to say, ‘My life is amazing, and I wouldn’t change who I am for anything.’”

Clorox actively supports and advocates for workplace equality for GLBT people. The company has fully inclusive equal-employment policies and provides equal-employment benefits. Clorox has earned a 100% score for the past six consecutive years on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index. Clorox is one of only three consumer goods companies to retain its perfect score, earning the distinction of being named one of the “Best Places to Work for GLBT Equality.

Earlier this year, Tom Johnson, Clorox VP-global business services, was named president of the board of directors of Out & Equal Workplace Advocates, a national nonprofit organization committed to ending employment discrimination for GLBT employees. Last year, Clorox Pride received the 2010 ERG of the Year award from Out & Equal Workplace Advocates.
