Employers have recognised that allies are essential to the creation of environments in which LGBT staff can fulfil their potential by feeling able to bring their whole selves to work. In order to capitalise on this, employers have designed formal programmes so that employees can be visible advocates for LGBT equality within their organisations. This guide demonstrates and celebrates some of the hugely progressive practices that the members of our Global Diversity Champions Programme are pioneering across their operations globally. Their work with allies globally is more than an internal practice, it is a model of learning and corporate social responsibility which can create real social change beyond the workplace.
