Today Red Hat joined with more than 60 other companies in filing a friend-of-the-court brief in U.S. Federal District Court opposing a state law (North Carolina House Bill 2 or HB2) that enables discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.

Red Hat spoke out early against HB2, and our friend-of-the-court brief supports the position that the law is discriminatory and stigmatizes transgender persons. A rich pool of diverse voices that represents different perspectives, interests, and questions is critical to our business and our communities.​

As we note in the brief, “diversity and inclusion are integral aspects” of Red Hat’s operations and “critical to our ability to compete in an increasingly varied and global marketplace.”
