ExxonMobil finally agrees to inclusive LGBT anti-discrimination policy


Chris Johnson of the Washington Blade reports that Exxon-Mobil has finally adopted a “LGBT-inclusive non discrimination policy” in the story here.  The announcement was seen as a bit underwhelming.

When I lived in Dallas in the 1980s, oil companies were major employers, particularly Mobil and Arco, and I actually interviewed ARCO in the spring of 1983.  As I recall, Mobil lost some protections when it merged with Exxon.

But I held Exxon in my own portfolio from 1977 until relatively recently.
