As Secretary

-- 6.15.17 - Secretary Ross removes sexual orientation and gender identity from the Department of Commerce Equal Employment Policy; LGBTQ protections have been explicitly included since 2010. Only after fierce opposition did Secretary Ross change it back

Prior to Service

-- Made homophobic and sexist jokes to a crowd while attending a Wall Street fraternity event. Only after he saw a journalist at the event did Ross then ask the journalist to not publish a story about the closed-door event. The journalist went on to publish this story
