Where We Are, Where We Are Going: Research Perspective
USCCF’s research report, “Business Success and Growth Through LGBT-Inclusive Culture”, examines the motivations and structure surrounding the adoption of LGBT-inclusive practices by companies. We share best practices for implementing inclusive policies and document the benefits that companies experience when they adopt these activities. The research offers new findings on how companies engage in LGBT-inclusive policies to help retain talent, strengthen organizational culture, and prove the authenticity of their LGBT engagements.
