Sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression—not to be confused with sexual activity or behavior—are personal characteristics that everyone has. Including LGBTQ+ employees is a vital component of a comprehensive diversity and inclusion strategy. Successfully recruiting, retaining, developing, and advancing LGBTQ+ employees helps organizations compete effectively for talent, minimize attrition costs, and better access LGBTQ+ consumer markets.
