Lockheed Martin

According to Independent Gay Forum columnist Steve Miller, Lockheed Martin has finally added sexual orientation to its non-discrimination in hiring policy. He adds that the company is going to offer domestic partner benefits beginning next year. His column entry (here, then scroll down to "Shareholders Rule") points to this article in the Rocky Mountain News.

An interesting aspect of this is that the pressure to make the change came from students at Swarthmore College. Swarthmore's press release regarding the matter is here.

Addendum: The Human Rights Campaign has this press release on the Lockheed Martin policy change.
