In the workplace
Corporate America is leading the way in creating LGBTQ-friendly and inclusive environments. In 2022, 842 companies scored 100 on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index. Fortune 500 companies continued to implement inclusive non-discrimination policies with 93 percent providing explicit protections on the basis of sexual orientation and 91 percent on the basis of gender identity.
This indicates tremendous progress.
However, policies and procedures have not necessarily translated into culture change in the workplace, and this fact remains a difficult reality for LGBTQ+ people, their families, and allies. In the U.S., roughly 50% of LGBTQ+ people report that they are in the closet at work, fearful that coming out may negatively impact their employment. And even among those who are out, reports of sensing that their workplace climate doesn’t support them sadly remain widespread.
