On Wednesday, May 11, 2016, Equality Winston-Salem will host the SECOND ANNUAL IN GOOD COMPANY event from 6-9pm at the Grand Pavilion Ballroom in the Twin City Quarter in downtown Winston-Salem. 

This year marks the 14th anniversary of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Corporate Equality Index (CEI). The Index measures the degree to which corporations across America embrace workplace diversity and demonstrate fair practices for LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) employees.

IN GOOD COMPANY is an event to honor and celebrate LGBT-friendly employers and their employees. Local LGBT-friendly small businesses, nonprofits and open and affirming faith communities are also invited to the celebration. All proceeds from IN GOOD COMPANY will benefit North Star LGBT Community Center in Winston-Salem. The Center opened in September 2013 with a mission to enrich the lives of the LGBT community by providing a safe and accepting place for people of all ages and backgrounds. For more information on North Star, please visit northstarlgbtccc.com.

There are many ways organizations and individuals can participate:
