Bisexual Visibility in the Workplace

Filed under: Workplace, Bisexual

Over the last decade and a half, hundreds of major businesses have adopted policies, benefits and practices aimed at furthering the inclusion of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community in the workplace with concrete advances such as the widespread adoption of sexual orientation and gender identity non-discrimination protections; partner benefits; employee resource groups; supplier diversity; and, public policy efforts.  A full 366 businesses earned a 100 percent score in the 2015 HRC Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index.

However, bisexual visibility and inclusion continues to be a challenge for many workplaces. LGBTQ inclusive policies, benefits and practices are absolutely critical to creating more equality on the job, but alone they are not sufficient for true cultural change. The HRC Foundation’s research on the daily realities of LGBTQ experiences, or the workplace climate, consistently shows significant numbers of Bi-identified workers across every region, industry and age group.
