Accenture Launches Getting to Equal Research on LGBT+ Community
On the surface, LGBT+ employees in many parts of the world have progressed in the workplace. But our global research reveals that underneath this success, they are experiencing unseen challenges and privately held fears at work that are hindering their ability to thrive. More than half (57%) of LGBT+ employees believe their gender identity and expression or their sexual orientation has slowed their progress at work. And shockingly, only 14% of LGBT+ employees feel fully supported by their employer when it comes to issues like welcoming those who identify as LGBT+.
Pride at Accenture: “We are committed to ensuring an inclusive environment for all employees regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.”
