In addition to these partners, we work with local LGBTQ organizations in key communities through our Great Cents program donating more than $100,000 over the last five years to Chicago-based LGBTQ charities. In 2016, 21 bars and 12 charities participated with a donation of nearly $35,000. MillerCoors field teams in Sacramento, San Francisco and Washington D.C. also implemented the program in 2016 donating nearly $5,000 each to local charities.
MillerCoors has an ERG known as LAGER (LGBT and Allies Group Employees Resources) that provides support to LGBTQ employees and allies to develop a safe and inclusive workplace in which all employees are treated equally. Chapters exist at our corporate offices and breweries in Chicago, Golden, Milwaukee, and Shenandoah. Each group organizes community events, volunteer programs, and promotes workplace diversity and inclusion initiatives, which helps MillerCoors earn the distinction of one of HRC’s “Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality.”
