This guide offers practical ways for global businesses to support lesbian, gay and bisexual people in the workplace in the face of ever changing local legal, social and cultural conditions. The guide features eleven major global organisations to highlight how they support lesbian, gay and bisexual staff around the world. Barclays, IBM, EY, Google and Herbert Smith Freehills are amongst the organisations that have shared their best practice.

The new guidance offers ten top tips to ensure organisation’s policies and values are consistent wherever they operate in the world - from ensuring clear global leadership in support of LGB equality to providing safe spaces for LGB staff in countries where no legal protections exist. The guide will be sent to 100 global employers, including businesses, government agencies and international universities.
