Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT)

In September 2014, the United Nation’s Human Rights Council approved a resolution that condemns discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. There remains opposition to this from some countries.

Many employers now have positive initiatives to prevent discrimination and provide support for LGBT employees. In 2014, the former Chairman of BP, Lord Browne published a book called the Glass Closet: Why Coming Out is Good Business. This book addresses the issue of homophobia in business and the benefits of inclusion in the workplace.
