Nasdaq Bell Rings for LGBTI Equality

12 January 2018.

On 12th January 2018, the United Nations Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights Andrew Gilmour visited the Nasdaq MarketSite in Times Square to promote the United Nations’ new global LGBTI equality standards for business.  In honour of the occasion, the Assistant Secretary-General rang the Opening Bell. 

The LGBT Principles, developed in partnership with the Institute for Human Rights and Business, are a new set of global standards aimed at helping business play a larger role in tackling discrimination against lesbian, gay, bi, trans and intersex (LGBTI) people in the workplace and beyond. The standards are the product of a year-long process of consultation, including regional meetings with business leaders and representatives of LGBTI communities in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas.
