Gays and Lesbians in Foreign Affairs Agencies Recognized

 Office of the Spokesman

Washington, DC


 

The Employee Affinity Group, Gays and Lesbians in Foreign Affairs Agencies (GLIFAA), has been recognized as the 2009 Employee Resource Group of the Year by the non-profit organization Out and Equal Workplace Advocates. 

 

Since 1992, GLIFAA has served as an officially-recognized employee organization representing the concerns of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered personnel at the Department of State, U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and other foreign affairs agencies. In 2009, with GLIFAA’s recommendations, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton implemented changes in Department of State policy to extend key benefits to same sex partners of State Department personnel serving abroad. 

 

Additional information about GLIFAA can be found at www.glifaa.org.
