Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Inclusion at Wachovia Corporation is part of a long-term culture change strategy to support engagement and inclusion for all employees across all identity groups. Wachovia explicitly frames LGBT inclusion as a discussion about identity, perspective, and the fair and inclusive treatment of employees and clients. In addition, the company articulates a strong business case for LGBT inclusion, and has developed an LGBT Employee Network Group—the Gay and Lesbian Employee Association (GALEA)—that includes both LGBT-identified employees and straight allies.

An excerpt from this practice was published in 2007 in Making Change: LGBT Inclusion—Implementing Policies, Programs, and Practices.
