Summary Straight Talk About Gays in the Workplace is also a very personal book, filled with stories and interviews with real people working at real companies. These tales illustrate the frustrations of being gay at an indifferent or hostile company and the energizing effects of working for an inclusive one. Straight Talk About Gays in the Workplace provides insights and practical advice for everyone in your company, and it has specific help for managers and human resources professionals. The book shows how to create a harassment-free, inclusive workplace that recognizes the rights and answers the concerns of all employees; design and deliver sexual-orientation education for all employees; develop an AIDS/HIV educational program that can save lives; and implement domestic partner benefits programs (with detailed information on costs, tax issues, how to overcome objections, and why these benefits are so important to gay employees)
Gays are a significant portion of our diverse workforce. In its powerful discussion of both human and organizational needs, Straight Talk About Gays in the Workplace will expand your understanding of this diversity, and help build a safe, equitable, and productive climate - for everyone
