Diversity and Inclusion in today's workforce is more than just
differences in race and gender. Differences in sexual
orientation, gender expression and gender identity can equally
affect everyday business interactions and viewpoints.
I'm sure by this point in your career, you've heard the word
"Gay" or "Lesbian" used to describe a person who is attracted to
people of the same sex or is in a relationship with someone of
the same sex. But what does the term "LGBT" really mean and how
does it affect the workplace around you?
The word LGBT describes distinctions in groups within the Gay
culture - Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, and Transgenders (LGBT).
These distinctions can impact collaboration, building teams,
coping with change, motivating, managing, and maintaining and
increasing productivity. This is because each LGBT worker may
have distinct attitudes, behaviors, expectations, work ethic,
communication styles, habits, and motivational buttons.
These distinctions represent a tremendous source of strength
when we learn how to use them to our advantage.
