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. Nestlé 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. The company does not provide viewpoint protections for its employees. Nestlé is part of the Global Alliance for Responsible Media and funds the Human Rights Campaign (HRC). Nestlé partners with the Global LGBTI Equality (PGLE) and mandates unconscious bias training for all its employees. The company has lobbied for the Equality Act but does not appear to discriminate against charitable organizations based on views or beliefs.
