“GLI is concerned by the advancement of House Bill 470 by the Kentucky House, and several other bills that have been filed to target LGBTQ+ populations. To maintain a thriving economy, we must create policies that allow our community to embrace and celebrate all races, backgrounds, and sexual orientations. GLI will continue to oppose any unwelcoming or discriminatory policies that could be harmful to talent attraction and retention.”
