Louisville's Diversity Shines
We know that an open and welcoming community is a high priority for both companies and workforce alike. That’s why we are proud of our inclusive nature dating back to 1999 when we were the first city in the South to pass a Fairness Law. Other notable accomplishments include:
- Perfect score of 100 on HRC’s Municipal Equality Index – six years in a row!
- In 2019, University of Louisville was one of only 17 schools in the nation to earn five stars in the Campus Pride Index and was the first public university in the South ranked among the “Best of the Best.”
- University of Louisville Medical School piloted the first medical student training for targeted LGBTQ healthcare needs and also is the first university in the country to offer a LGBTQ Studies minor.
- Louisville Metro Government extends benefits options to domestic partners of employees and was one of the first cities in the South to do so.
