Apple CEO Cook pushes for anti-discrimination bill

November 4, 2013

Apple CEO Tim Cook urged Congress to pass legislation banning workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity in an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal.

"Protections that promote equality and diversity should not be conditional on someone's sexual orientation," he wrote in the op-ed, which was published online Sunday. "For too long, too many people have had to hide that part of their identity in the workplace."

Cook, who is gay, argued that respecting people's individuality is a civil rights issue and is good for business.
