Overview

Establish inclusive policies to increase productivity and profitability!

Until recently, the topic of diversity in the workplace had been limited to race and gender issues. In the past decade, however, there has been a growing awareness that sexual orientation is also a valid component of diversity. Even more importantly, the inclusion of this aspect of diversity and workplace education about it in organizational policy and programs are positive, revenue-enhancing actions for business organizations. This is true whether the organization in question is a municipal employer, a college/university, a nonprofit, or a private sector employer.

The first edition of Straight Talk About Gays in the Workplace was the only book available to address sexual orientation for employers concerned about this aspect of diversity. This new edition is still the only book to do so.
