The decision to come out as a member of the LGBTQ+ community in the workplace is a very personal one. There are many factors to consider; Does your organization have an inclusive, friendly, and open culture? How will your colleagues or manager respond? We all want to bring our full selves to work in an authentic way; however, for individuals who identify as LGBTQ+, bringing their full identities to work can still be nuanced depending on their workplace. Our friends at the Wake Forest LGBTQ+ Center shared this fantastic resource from on Workplaces. Get information here both from an employee and an ally perspective – we can all learn, grow, and work towards building more inclusive work cultures together.
