Values that Motivate LGBT Employees

Session Overview:

As diverse as the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) community may be--many LGBT-identifying employees have shared life experiences, which are the cornerstone of any culture or subculture. Based on research conducted by LCW with a global team of LGBT-identifying experts as part of the Cultural Detective® LGBT project, this session presents key core values of the LGBT community alongside how those core values play out in the workplace. 

Session Topics:

  • Define culture and identify sexual orientation and gender identity as one of many dimensions shaping an individual's cultural worldview
  • Identify 5 core values shared by the LGBT community as a whole
  • Begin to understand how those values motivate actions and words of members of LGBT culture
