By complying with the HRC’s controversial demands, Dropbox, a file hosting service, increases the risk of dividing employees, alienating customers and harming shareholders. The company covers transgender-related medical costs for its employees and their children and provides specific sexual orientation and gender identity-based benefits. It also uses sex and gender ideology criteria in employee recruitment, vendor selection, marketing, and philanthropic support. Dropbox forces employees to undergo multiple ideological trainings and uses its reputation, corporate funds, and political influence to support controversial sex and gender ideologies, organizations, and legislation. Dropbox does not provide viewpoint protections for its employees. A company executive publicly stated she prioritized people of color in the hiring process. However, Dropbox has not publicly terminated business relationships based on views or beliefs. Dropbox signed a public letter opposing a proposed religious freedom law in Missouri and has pledged support to BLM and related causes. The company supports the Equality Act and has opposed anti-LGBTQ legislation.
