Work Life Matters Magazine will host their 10th Annual Work Life Matters Gala on December 4th, honoring the Top Companies for LGBT Equality. Since 2002, Work Life Matters Magazine annually pays tribute to companies that serve as leaders in their respective fields by providing innovative and effective work/life balance programs and policies for their employees.
Lori Sokol, Ph.D., Founder & Publisher of Work Life Matters, announced that all honorees will be profiled in the annual special awards issue, published nationwide this December. Sokol is well known in the media world. A regular contributor to The Huffington Post, she has written for The New York Times, Women’s eNews, The Baltimore Sun, and several other publications, and additionally making television appearances. Her versatile background gave her the knowledge and credibility for Work Life Matters Magazine.
Companies such as ESPN, Davis Polk & Wardwell, Discovery Communications, Orbitz Worldwide, Eli Lilly & Co., and Microsoft are just a few of this year’s honorees. This will also be the second consecutive year that the magazine will specifically honor top companies for implementing and supporting LGBT equality programs and practices throughout their organizations.
“This year’s honorees are serving as corporate pioneers by supporting the advancement of LGBT equality within their organizations, as well as to the community-at-large,” says Lori Sokol, “The importance of ensuring LGBT equality throughout the workplace is becoming increasingly evident, so we are thrilled to pay tribute to each of these companies that have proven to be leaders in their respective industries.”
This event is a step in the right direction towards work balance and equality. Celebrating the 10th Annual Gala is a milestone as it shows how far society has come in those years and what people can accomplish.
