Because many of us spend so much time at work, it is crucial that our workplace be a space where we feel safe and welcome. However, nearly half of LGBTQ individuals are not out in the workplace, and that statistic has remained largely unchanged in the past decade according to the Human Rights Campaign.
LGBTQ individuals, especially transgender people, also face barriers to gaining employment in the first place, which jeopardizes access to healthcare, housing, and more.
One Iowa provides programming and resources to help employers create inclusive workplaces and connect LGBTQ Iowans with fulfilling career opportunities. Not only is creating safe and affirming workplaces the right thing to do, but it also makes business sense to make this a priority.
