On 4th July 2017 Stonewall published its

•BP plc
•Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer
•Herbert Smith Freehills
•Pinsent Masons
•Simmons & Simmons
•Thomson Reuters

Tomorrow I'll get the share prices for this lot for 04.07.2017, and later compare them to the share prices on 04.07.2018

In theory they should do badly. Having a Corporate Director of Inclusion isn't going to make you any more productive, and to be good for your bottom line it's got to make you more productive than the cost of having someone in that post answering questionnaires from bandit charities.

why should they do badly in theory? if a corporate director of inclusion introduces a policy that lgbt employees heartily approve of they may well become more productive then, as long as the non lgbt employees dont become less productive, the company will benefit. such a policy may well also lead to more lgbt people buying their goods and services too, again as long as it doesnt put non lgbt customers off, profits may increase too. good luck to anyone trying to disaggregate all this and work out what profit is down to this policy and what isnt. never mind the affect on the share price.

the concept of 'minority stress' looks at how people from stigmatized groups suffer high levels of stress, anxiety and drug & alcohol abuse. this will make them less productive whilst at work. policies that are more inclusive, if successful, are likely to lead to increased productivity and so greater profits.

you are saying that if these companies do badly (or well for that matter) compared to the rest of the stock market then this is solely due to their lgbt policies. you are grossly over simplifying complicated matters imo.

I take it you are not a fan of murdered MP Jo Cox who said "We are far more united and have far more in common with each other than things that divide us" and that the other directors could not have come up with the same or better good policies. We should have special regard for certain groups that do not have things in common with everyone else.
