Watch Now: Employee Pride? What really happens to your LGBT+ employees at work

Our contribution to LGBT+ History Month took an in-depth look into LGBT+ employees’ experiences in the workplace. We looked at: what language is appropriate to use; the unique forms of exclusion the LGBT+ community face; the stereotypes and attitudes towards the LGBT+ community; how to cultivate an organisational culture where your LGBT+ employees feel safe to be themselves; and the practical steps to create an LGBT+ inclusive workplace.
