Louisville's Diversity Shines

Whether it’s our Midwestern sensibilities or our Southern hospitality, Louisville continues to attract investments, new businesses, and the creation of new amenities. With more than $17.9 billion of investment taking place in our city, a diverse portfolio of companies are finding their home in Louisville. We are proud to be the home to the 11th largest LGBTQ population in the United States, a progressive state university, and a Mayor who touts compassion as one of his top city goals.
People from all walks of life and from around the globe are finding their home in Louisville … no matter who you love or where you’re from, Louisville is the perfect place for you and your company!

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.
