In honor of National Coming Out Day, Whirlpool Corporation's employees posted a video on October 11 to share an "It Gets Better" message with LGBT youth who are struggling with bullying and self-acceptance.

The It Gets Better campaign focuses on inspiring LGBT youth to overcome bullying and harassment, and hopes to prevent teen suicide as a result. The movement collects video submissions from individuals and organizations with a common theme: "it gets better." The message is meant to encourage these young people to seek help if they are in crisis, and to provide hope that life will get better.

Whirlpool Corporation has earned a 100 percent score on the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Corporate Equality index for more than seven years. The index scores companies on the policies and practices related to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees. Companies like Whirlpool with a 100% score are featured on the HRC Best Places to Work list—a list that is reviewed by Wall Street, top talent and the company's competition.
