The LGBTQIA+ community in the corporate world

June kicks off Pride Month, a time of year for celebrating the thriving and diverse LGBTQIA+ community. 🌈 But unfortunately, the workplace hasn’t historically created environments where LGBTQIA+ individuals feel comfortable being themselves. 

Did you know…

  • 20% of LGBTQ Americans have faced workplace discrimination
  • Of the 20%, 32% are LGBTQIA+ people of color (source)
  • About half (46%) of LGBTQIA+ employees remained closeted in the workplace
  • 59% of non-LGBTQIA+ employees found discussing sexual orientation and gender identity inappropriate while at work (source)

There may have been major strides in recent years that better the world for this community, but there’s still much to do. 

It’s important to step up and ensure the office is a safe environment for all employees, no matter their gender expression or sexual orientation. These efforts go beyond making a company logo rainbow for a month and require direct, meaningful action with a long-term impact. 

Here are a few resources that can help you do just that 👇

Transgender Inclusion in the Workplace: A Toolkit for Employers

A detailed, practical guide on fostering a safe and healthy environment for your trans and gender-nonconforming employees. Includes best practices for administrative organization, explanations on pronouns, and other helpful tips. 

Healthcare Laws & Policies 

An intuitive map that outlines gender and sexual orientation discrimination laws for insurance in each state. Useful for finding states where providers include transition-related healthcare in their policies. 

Mental Health Resources

Whether you’re looking for online therapy, supportive organizations, or emergency help, you’ll find trusted resources for the LBGTQ+ community here.

Proud to celebrate Pride 💝

Confetti is home to proud supporters & members of the LGBTQIA+ community. We strive to make this workplace inclusive and welcoming to all — it’s ingrained in our company’s core values. 

Currently, we offer insurance plans that cover hormones, gender reassignment surgeries, and other medically necessary procedures or medications, regardless of a person’s identity. But we still strive to do more. We encourage others to do the same. 🥰

P.S. If you’re looking for virtual experiences that align with your inclusivity efforts and foster team connection, check out our Pride Month collection.
