Miller Lite, Equality Federation Introduce Inclusivity Initiative

By July 25, 2021Top News

Miller Lite and the Equality Federation announced the “Open & Proud”’ program, an initiative that aims to create safe, inclusive spaces at bars for the LGBTQ community. The program includes the development and implementation of inclusivity training materials for bar owners and employees at the 55,000 bars and nightclubs where Miller Lite is sold. The training materials will be informed by intersectional LGBTQ experiences shared at town halls across the country. The impetus for the program seeks to address reports of “LGBTQ feeling unwelcome at restaurants and bars and of LGBTQ people of color and transgender and gender-nonconforming folks being discriminated against at LGBTQ bars,” to ensure all individuals feel accepted and welcomed. Miller Lite has partnered with the Equality Federation since 2017 and has donated $250,000 to help advance workplace fairness and equality at national and local levels.
