Under New USAID Policy, Contractors Cannot Discriminate Against LGBTI People When Providing Services

Devex: What USAID’s new LGBTI anti-discrimination policy means for implementers
“Contractors and implementers receiving funding from the U.S. aid agency cannot discriminate against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex people when providing services, according to a new U.S. Agency for International Development policy. … The U.S. aid agency says the move is intended to make explicit USAID’s general approach to promoting inclusive development and also builds on President Barack Obama’s ‘commitment to social inclusion around the world,’ according to a statement from Administrator Gayle Smith…” (Edwards, 11/28).
