Overview of the Resource Guide
Despite growing awareness in India of the link between diversity and enhanced business performance, the subject of sexual orientation and LGBT has largely been overlooked. Regarded by many as a subject that has no place for discussion in the workplace and shrouded in taboo and stigma, companies - both local and international, have steered away from including this on their corporate diversity agenda.  However, with the tide of change happening (as evidenced by changes in legislation and the emergence of a more visible LGBT community) - not just in India but across Asia, Community Business believes that leading companies operating in India have a role to play in challenging mindsets and creating a more safe and open environment for their LGBT employees.   

To support companies on this journey, Community Business, with sponsors Goldman Sachs, IBM and Google, is launching a new Resource Guide for Employers.  This clearly establishes the business case, gives an overview of the cultural, social and legal context for LGBT in India and provides a set of regionally relevant recommendations to help companies create more inclusive workplaces for their LGBT employees in India.
