Tell us about yourself:
Michael Chanak Jr. is a gay rights activist who started working for Cincinnati-based Procter & Gamble (P&G) in the mid-1980s. He worked for years to get the company to add a clause to the equal employment opportunity (EEO) policy that protected the rights of gay people against discrimination at the workplace (09-15-1992). Twenty-five years later, P&G made a short film to mark the anniversary of the policy change. The film won a Silver Lion award for corporate and social responsibility at the Cannes Lion Festival.
