Equality Forum, a national and international lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) civil rights organization in Philadelphia says that a record 483 (96.6%) of the 2012 FORTUNE 500 Companies voluntarily include sexual orientation in their employment non-discrimination policies. in 2007, Republican Vice Presidential Nominee Paul Ryan voted in favor of the unsuccessful attempt to amend the federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) to include sexual orientation and gender identity. Gov. Romney opposes workplace discrimination, but has taken no position on including sexual orientation and gender identity in ENDA.
