Gender mainstreaming

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) employees are part of a sizeable and dynamic workforce with unique professional insight and qualities. Workplaces around the world are becoming aware about LGBT issues, an increasing number of global organisations are creating and maintaining an inclusive workplace culture as top priority, many of them have globally inclusive policies that include LGBT. 

However, in local contexts where homosexuality is a social taboo and same-sex conduct is criminalized, it becomes a challenge to implement inclusive global diversity policies.
