Research shows that people shop from places that share their values.  

This holiday season, Open to All is making it easy to harness our collective consumer purchasing power and invest in businesses that are taking a stand for inclusion and diversity.  

Today, Open to All released its first-ever Open to All Holiday Gift Guide to encourage consumers to support inclusive businesses this holiday season.  

The Holiday Gift Guide features products from some of the most iconic brands at every price point. The guide covers an array of inclusive retailers who celebrate the core principle that any business that is open to the public should make every person feel safe and welcome—regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, immigration status, religion or disability.

Building on Open to All’s ongoing work with Yelp, starting today, people can filter by “Open to All”—an attribute which allows businesses to distinguish themselves as a safe and welcoming place to everyone—when searching for restaurants, shops, bakeries, tailors, and much more. Yelp users will also be able to identify participating businesses by the newly designed “Open to All” icon displayed on their Yelp page. These new features make it easier than ever for consumers to support inclusive businesses.

Among the Holiday Gift Guide’s featured businesses is Sephora, which today announced it is joining the growing and vocal network of major brands uniting under Open to All’s banner—including Yelp, Gap Inc., Old Navy, Coach, kate spade new york, Chronicle Books, Fossil, Lacoste, Michaels Craft Stores, Steve Madden, Tiffany & Co., H&M, and thousands of small businesses. 

At a time of deep divisions, Open to All nonprofits and businesses are joining together from all walks of life and working to build a thriving and inclusive nation where all are welcome. When we value our employees and care for our customers and each other, we all thrive.
