LGBTQ+ workers more likely to experience microaggressions

In a McKinsey survey, nearly one-third of surveyed LGBTQ+ employees reported experiencing a microaggression at the workplace—being interrupted or talked over, for example. This figure jumps, however, depending on the different subsets within the LGBTQ+ community, say partner Monne Williams and coauthors.

Bisexual and transgender employees are more likely than other surveyed employees to report experiencing microaggressions at work.
