LGBTQ+ inclusion and profitability report
A recent study by Open for Business has revealed that LGBTQ+ inclusion is linked to higher profitability.
🌈 Companies at the forefront of LGBTQ+ transparency are 2.3 times more profitable than their counterparts. 🌈 A whopping 92% of major companies now view diversity, equity, and inclusion as essential to their operations. 🌈 This is driven by the global LGBTQ+ consumer market grownung larger than many of the world’s large economies.
Who knew diversity was essential for business? 😉
It’s bittersweet that it’s often economic benefits that pave the way for greater inclusion, but if it catalyzes a shift towards more equitable ways of working, I’ll take it.
How is your company putting inclusion into practice? Is it? 🙈 I’d love to hear from the trailblazers in the comments.
