January 24, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Seven multinational companies launched a Partnership for LGBTI Equality on Tuesday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
For the first time, the high-profile club of global political and economic leaders welcomed a special session for “LGBTI rights,” which world businesses want to promote and implement according to United Nations LGBTI Standards of Conduct, with the backing of the WEF and the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.
The new initiative is led by Accenture, Deutsche Bank, EY, MasterCard, Microsoft, Omnicom, and Salesforce. They aim to enlist at least 100 more companies from WEF members and beyond by 2020.
The objective is to create a “due-diligence framework” to help corporations assess their own level of compliance with UN standards but also to have an impact on society at large, at a global level, in view of LGBTI “inclusion.”
The World Economic Forum, founded by Klaus Schwab, is openly playing its role in globalist social engineering. Its annual meetings used to be closed to the public and even surrounded in secrecy. Through the years, it has opened itself up to the media, now frankly exposing its efforts in view of promoting present and future “global orders,” in which traditional moral values must give way to new commandments: nondiscrimination, inclusiveness, pride in moral transgression.
The whole concept of “LGBTI rights,” after all, means demanding rights for and taking pride in behavior that not so long ago was socially considered to be disordered and detrimental, and that from a moral and religious point of view constitutes grave sin, a rebellion against divine and natural law.
Together, Accenture and the other six multinationals involved in the Partnership for LGBTI Equality represent hundreds of billions of dollars in capitalization and hundreds of thousands of employees the world over, and so it’s no wonder they consider themselves a force for change.
In fact, their commitment to LGBT rights exposes them as a super-powerful pressure group working as the enforcer of the United Nations’ subversive agenda, especially in countries where homosexuality is still frowned upon.
But the revolutionary objective of the new Partnership purports to be working mainly for “human rights” and the bettering of business prospects.
“LGBTI inclusion is not only the right thing to do from an interpersonal point of view, it is also a business imperative because CEOs recognize that a culture of equality creates trust, innovation and therefore business growth,” said Sander van ’t Noordende, group chief executive – products at Accenture, who makes no mystery of the fact that he himself “married” his male partner.
As do the other members of the group, he touts the idea that preventing people from “coming out” in their professional lives and not giving them equal rights leads businesses to miss out on talent. The Partnership eagerly quotes UNAIDS, which in a study published in 2017 estimated the global cost of LGBTI discrimination at $100 billion per year.
This explains why Accenture put up a news byte on its website proclaiming: “By far, the biggest future workforce news from this year’s gathering is the launch of the Partnership for Global LGBTI Equality between the WEF and a consortium of seven multinational companies (Accenture, Deutsche Bank, EY, MasterCard, Microsoft, Omnicom and Salesforce). The initiative seeks to help businesses accelerate inclusion of LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex) people in the workplace worldwide.”
The Partnership was officially launched Tuesday, and on the following day in Davos five representatives of the initiative joined a public roundtable to talk about their commitment.
Michelle Bachelet, former Chilean socialist president and current United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, said she counted on companies to “put in place anti-discrimination policies, grievance mechanisms and due diligence” in the workplace but also to put pressure on all countries to put in place anti-discrimination legislation or “change inadequate laws for the better.”
This means that the objective is to obtain total equality for LGBTI individuals at all levels, all “discrimination” or difference of treatment being as such considered unjust.
Beth Brooke of EY, who is “married” to a woman, explained how the agenda was brought to the fore at the WEF.
It was a question of “a handful of companies working behind the scenes after 6+ years, very quietly trying to make progress,” she said. She also revealed what had been privately said to her and her colleagues by Joe Biden at a former meeting:
“You multinationals … can do what the government cannot do, and I implore you to do it around the world in LGBTI matters.”
Tony Prophet, the representative for Salesforce, a major American cloud-based software company, said corporations have the “obligation” to use their platform “for the betterment of society.” As chief equality officer of Salesforce, he certainly believes in merging business objectives and social or cultural aims.
Prophet is a great believer in Ohana, the Hawaiian conception of family, where “families, biological, adopted or ‘intentional,’ are connected and responsible for each others’ spiritual and physical well-being.” In recent interviews, he explained that he devotes 30 percent of his work time to implementing Ohana groups, to turn his company into one big family.
Ohana believes in the connection of all persons who choose to consider themselves as families, together with the things that surround them.
At Davos, Prophet made a discrete reference to one of his own three sons who is transgender. On the internet, he presents himself as the “proud father of an LGBTQ son.”
Salesforce has made the LGBTI agenda a driving force in its work throughout the world. It participates Pride Parades promoting drag queens and encouraging its employees to join, dressed in pink.
As for Barri Rafferty, CEO of Ketchum, a member of the Omnicom group, she explained that her own company had been brought to realize that while it appeared to have a good anti-discrimination policy, things were not that simple.
For instance, Ketchum offered maternity leave. “But that isn't for everyone,” said Rafferty. So now they have “family bonding time for everyone and for every type of family.” “There's more that we can do to make sure we’re being inclusive,” she added.
The Partnership for LGBTI Equality is also intent on making the LGBT community appear to be more and more mainstream. Brooke said 20 percent of millennials identify as LGBTQI, and even more, 29 percent, of college graduates “identify as non-binary, neither male nor female.” She went on to deplore that 62 percent of these people “go back into the closet” once they enter the workforce and become “30 percent less productive” because of it.
