DuPont 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. DuPont does not provide viewpoint protections for its employees. The company’s executive chairman and CEO signed Catalyst's Champions for Change pledge. DuPont supports the Equality Act and is a coalition partner of America Competes. The company signed an amicus brief in opposition to the 2016 North Carolina bathroom bill HB2, which required people to use the bathroom of their biological sex.
