Intel on Friday joined the growing list of companies backing a federal bill that seeks to ban anti-LGBT discrimination in all areas of civil rights.

If approved, the bill, titled the Equality Act, would prohibit anti-LGBT discrimination in seven key areas, including credit, education, employment, federal funding, housing, jury service and public accommodations, by effectively expanding the Civil Rights Act, originally approved in 1964.

“Intel supports the Equality Act and the protections for LGBT Americans it outlines, and we thank Senator [Jeff] Merkley and his colleagues for their leadership on this important U.S. legislation,” Intel said in a blog post.

“We respect, value, and celebrate the unique points of view and opportunities that come with diversity in our employees, communities, customers, suppliers, and other partners in the global marketplace. We believe that a more inclusive workforce makes us a stronger company, and that our impact on people’s lives around the world is a direct result of our diverse employees. Ensuring equality for LGBT individuals is not only good for our business, it’s the right thing to do.”

Intel joins Symantec, IBM, Orbitz, American Airlines, Amazon, General Electric, HP, Microsoft, General Mills, Google, Facebook, Nike, Apple, The Dow Chemical Company and Levi Strauss, & Co. in supporting the bill.

Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Rodham Clinton, Martin O'Malley and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders have also endorsed the Equality Act.
