► FELGTB federation names “top 10” LGBT-friendly companies in Spain
► List includes Spain’s Telefónica, plus nine multinational subsidiaries
Spain’s national LGBT+ federation has named the top ten companies working to promote diversity and sexual inclusion in the workplace, with the Spanish subsidiaries of five foreign-based multinational corporations topping the annual list.
The designation of the ten companies results from the annual EDEMI survey of major employers in Spain carried out by the Federación Estatal de Lesbianas, Gais, Transexuales y Bisexuales (FELGTB, or National Federation of Lesbians, Gays, Transsexuals and Bisexuals).

Following the organization’s 2018 survey, the annual EDEMIS awards for best practices in workplace diversity and sexual and gender inclusivity were presented to nine Spanish affiliates of foreign-based parent corporations and one Spain-based multinational.
Companies making the the EDEMIS top-ten list this year, were: P&G (Proctor & Gamble), international consulting firm Accenture, telecoms provider Vodafone, global software firm SAP, Nielsen Holdings, IBM, Spanish telecoms company Telefónica, tech-giant Oracle, French insurance company AXA and UK-based insurer Admiral.
According to the FELGTB, nearly three-quarters (73 percent) of major employers participating in its annual EDEMIS survey have equality plans in place that specifically include guidelines on sexual orientation and gender diversity, with 93 percent of companies surveyed having assigned a person as responsible for diversity practices within the organization.
