LGBTQ+ Inclusion

Best practices for inclusive communication, supportive behaviors and allyship

Inclusion in the workplace is about welcoming individuals for who they are and the talents they bring to the organization. And that includes individuals from the LGBTQ+ community. LGBTQ+ is an acronym for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer, with a “+” sign to recognize the spectrum of sexual orientations and gender identities.

While progress has been made in raising awareness of the benefits of a more diverse and inclusive workplace, 75% of LGBTQ+ employees surveyed reported experiencing negative day-to-day interactions at work related to their LGBTQ+ identity.

Ensuring that policies, practices and training are inclusive of LGBTQ+ employees strengthens workplace culture and fosters a psychologically safe environment in which all employees feel they can bring their authentic selves to work, resulting in more creative thinking and higher engagement and productivity.

From a legal and compliance perspective, employees are protected against workplace discrimination and harassment based on their sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. This means that important employment decisions — such as recruiting and hiring — can’t be based on these protected characteristics and that people can’t be discriminated against or harassed at work because of them.
