In Part I, managers are introduced to fifteen workers who relate their remarkable life histories about being gay, lesbian, bisexual and heterosexual in the workplace. Through real-life situations from corporate America, managers gain knowledge of sexuality issues that influence co-workers, employees, bosses and customers alike.
In Part II, managers learn how to select diversity-sensitive employees, define their responsibilities in the workplace, set performance expectations, provide feedback and recognition, and reward success to cultivate the open and inclusive work environment. As workers shift their energies away from "hiding" their sexual orientation, workplace productivity increases to achieve and exceed goals and objectives.
In Part III, managers develop strategies to effectively communicate the company message of inclusion and openness in the workplace. Features include:

This book will only be helpful if you know next to nothing on this subject. There are some serious works dealing with sexual orientation in the workplace. This is not one of them. A serious book would examine the kinds of issues that exist, why they exist and how a manager can address those issues. The authors' stance 'they're here, they're queer, get use to it' doesn't work when dealing with employees making a gay employee's life miserable. Considering the book consists of mostly chapters on 'work coming out' stories, that add human interest but little substance, and 'how to support diversity' lists, that lack originality, not to mention a few blank pages insert here and there, the only thing I could think of is that the authors wanted to cash in on a hot topic fast.Was this review helpful?
