Weber Shandwick Releases Guide on LGBT Equality

Simply amazing. Weber Shandwick, one of the the world's largest and most respected PR firms, has teamed up with The Gill Foundation to publish a free guide to help corporations and nonprofits advance LGBT equality. The guide is a result of a 2009 project that included a summer fellowship program for LGBT student leaders, and an advisory board made up of expert nonprofit and corporate professionals working toward LGBT equality. Additionally, executives from General Mills, American Airlines, Ernst & Young, Time Warner, MTV, InterContinental Hotels, Levi Strauss and Best Buy participated, just to name a few.
