How to bridge the disconnect between diversity and inclusion

While organizations have made strides in their efforts to support LGBTQ+ rights over the past decade, workplaces remain far from truly inclusive: The LGBTQ+ community is underrepresented in the workplace, especially at more senior levels, and transgender employees, in particular, face increasing threats to safety and existence. To break down the barriers that inhibit progress, employers must better understand the challenges that LGBTQ+ people face on a day-to-day basis. This International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (#IDAHOTB2022), explore these insights to understand how your organization can work toward a truly inclusive environment for all employees, and why that’s a crucial undertaking for business—and people.
