Degrees of Equality

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation studied how LGBT identity surfaces and unfolds in the workplace, how environment can affect the retention and productivity of all employees and how organizations can identify and address opportunities to improve climate. The findings were striking: a majority "51 percent" of LGBT workers continue to hide their identity from most or all co-workers, and younger workers are even more likely to hide — only 5 percent of LGBT employees ages 18 to 24 say they are totally open at work, compared to more than 20 percent of older workers.
