Inclusion of LGBTQ+
Inclusion of LGBT+
In an LGBTQ-inclusive workplace, all employees are treated fairly and have equal access to career opportunities, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, and/or gender expression.
LGBTQ employees face both subtle and overt forms of discrimination, even in places that are perceived as LGBTQ inclusive. Building organizational support for LGBTQ inclusion requires a strong rationale that frames LGBTQ inclusion as a workplace imperative.
LGBTQ inclusion motivates employees to do their personal best and be authentic at work. If they are not able to make a genuine connection with coworkers because of fear of rejection or actual harassment, LGBTQ employees are simply not given the chance to be effective team players and their ability to excel can be compromised.
