Pennsylvania Values is backed by small businesses, large companies, and major employers committed to a commonwealth which protects and welcomes all.
Our Business + Employer Coalition Pledge
As employers of Pennsylvanians across every region of our commonwealth, we believe the surest way to support a growing economy is to attract the best talent to work in the Keystone State. Successful businesses understand the importance of fostering workplaces that are welcoming to all people.
We know updating Pennsylvania’s nondiscrimination law will strengthen our state as a top economic competitor. Updating the law to include sexual orientation and gender identity will ensure Pennsylvania businesses can recruit and retain the best talent.
We believe that nondiscrimination protections strengthen our businesses and communities and are not a burden. When our employees and their families are supported and protected we are more productive and better off as businesses and as a society.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of students graduate from Pennsylvania’s nationally-renowned schools and universities. We want to keep bright, young talent here to cultivate a healthy economy so our commonwealth will prosper. Our current and future workforce deserves to be judged based on their qualifications to do their work – nothing more, nothing less. Pennsylvania should be open to business for everyone.
As signers of the Pennsylvania Values Business Pledge, we are committed to promoting a thriving, welcoming, and economically-strong commonwealth.
