LGBTQ at the Tipping Point: How Changing Mainstream Views Affect the Workplace
New developments in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) issues have permanently changed the landscape of global diversity and inclusion. The growth in municipalities with marriage equality, the rise in same-sex-headed households, and the new openness of discourse surrounding sexual orientation have created a climate where companies will need to accommodate this thriving demographic through more comprehensive domestic partner benefits, tax equalization, and representation at all levels of the enterprise.
Further, next generation diversity and inclusion goes beyond just accepting people’s sexual orientation. It requires leaders to acknowledge the complexity within the LGBTQ community in terms of race, socioeconomic status, gender expression, and identity. LGBTQ at the Tipping Point provides critical insight and guidance on action steps diversity practitioners can take in this area.
