Many companies face the challenge on how to advance LGBT inclusion when it can become a conflict with local law or culture.
The authors in this article explain how it can be done after reviewing the research conducted by interviewing 30 individuals from Dow, EY, and Microsoft in a variety of countries, from Brazil to Japan to Saudi Arabia.
The finding is very encouraging and it varies from simply following local norms, to creating an inclusive environment for their own employees, to advocating for change in the wider society.
They explained that cultivating internal pro-LGBT champions and acting with subtlety and creativity can promote and facilitate LGBT inclusion.
