There's more work to do
In America, there are zero federal protections for LGBTQ people. In nearly 30 states, you can be fired for either being transgender or not being straight. Globally, 70 countries outlaw being any derivative of LGBTQ.
In spite of incredible strides for our rights, LGBTQ people don’t have the same advantages as our straight peers in the workplace. In the US, nearly 50% of LGBTQ people are not out at work — the foundation of creating a positive, inclusive career.
Employment equity means stopping all of the things that work against us, and instead, devising ways that LGBTQ people have more than basic human rights; we live with pride.
