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.
