LGBT+ Inclusion Report by the IA

19th September 2019|Report

In 2019, the Investment Association asked LGBT+ people working in the industry if they could remember the first time they came out at work, and what made them feel the circumstances were right.

This report seeks to point to practical steps that companies can take to create a supportive and inclusive environment which attracts and retains the best LGBT+ talent, including:

  • Hardwiring diversity into the recruitment process. 
  • Having a queer eye for the LGBT+ ally. 
  • Helping employees manage their β€˜gay job’ alongside their day job. 
  • Do ask. Do tell. 
  • Taking LGBT+ people seriously at work.
