This article outlines several recommendations for businesses that want to create a workplace that is LGBTQ-friendly. These suggestions begin with training, where companies should educate employees and management on LGBTQ-related topics. This can be done through seminars, workshops, and other activities that create a dialogue about sexual and gender identity diversity. They should also create a safe space for employees to report any incidents of discrimination or harassment. Additionally, companies should review and update their policies to make sure they are inclusive of the LGBTQ community. This includes including gender-neutral language in work documents, providing gender-neutral bathrooms and adapting other resources to include gender identities beyond male and female. Employers should also take part in LGBTQ-focused events within their community such as parades, festivals, and other activities. Finally, businesses should strive to recruit and hire members of the LGBTQ community and create a safe environment for employees to bring their true selves to work every day.
