Out Leadership is pleased to invite Human Resources and Diversity & Inclusion leaders from our member companies to discuss the first comprehensive, international study of high-performing, high-potential LGBT+ emerging business leaders, conducted in partnership with PwC.
Out to Succeed: Realizing the full potential of your LGBT+ talent highlights a gap between what high potential LGBT+ employees want from their career and what employers offer. The report is based on an international survey of 231 high-potential LGBT+ employees and 28 corporate leaders from Out Leadership member organizations.Some highlights from the research include:
Most LGBT+ employees surveyed say being out has had a positive impact on their career.
Only 29% of employers have programs focused on the retention of LGBT+ talent.
83% of the LGBT+ employees surveyed believe that having an openly supportive focus on LGBT+ has improved their organization’s place in the market by being recognised as an inclusive employer. Almost all (96%) the 28 employers surveyed agree.
More than 80% of LGBT+ and non-LGBT+ millennials (people born between 1980 and 1995) say that an employer’s policy on diversity, LGBT+ equality and workforce inclusion is an important factor when deciding whether to work for them.
