Social Driver ranked #4 on the LGBTQ-Owned Companies list in the Washington Business Journal’s 2019 ranking.

The rankings examined multiple factors, including the number of employees and what percentage of the business was LGBTQ-owned.

“As the CEO of a Certified LGBTQ-owned Business Enterprise, I am honored for our company to be featured in the Washington Business Journal’s ranking of LGBTQ-Owned Companies,” said Thomas Sanchez, CEO of Social Driver. “We celebrate diversity in all forms at Social Driver, from our staff to the work we do with our clients to the causes we support in the community.”

“We are proud to foster an inclusive work environment. From creating space to declare preferred name and pronouns in our staff meetings to celebrating Pride in our office with our employees, we strive to make Social Driver a place where everyone can bring all that we are to all that we do,” said Anthony Shop, Social Driver Chief Strategy Officer.  

As part of its work with the world’s leading organizations, Social Driver helps its clients to elevate their diversity and inclusion efforts. To help Pepco celebrate Pride, Social Driver created a Snapchat filter to engage the community and graphics that highlighted employees’ perspectives.  

Social Driver also recently led the strategic naming and branding process for the Modern Military Association of America, the nation’s largest nonprofit organization dedicated to education, advocacy and support for LGBTQ service members, military spouses, veterans, family members and allies.

In addition to celebrating diversity in the workplace and throughout its client work, Social Driver has given to and helped raise tens of thousands of dollars for the The Trevor Project, the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ people under 25. Sanchez serves on The Trevor Project’s Board of Directors and has gotten many clients involved. Washingtonian Magazine also named Social Driver as one of the 18 most charitable companies in DC.
