The Workplace as a Sanctuary?

The Workplace as a Sanctuary?

On this darkest day of the year, it’s hard not to think about the growing tidal wave of fear and uncertainty threatening to crash down upon marginalized communities like immigrants, people of color, women, LGBTQ folks, and those living at the intersections. For LGBTQ people, 82 percent believe that “day-to-day life is likely to get worse” in the United States as a result of the Presidential elections. The lack of inclusive federal workplace protections leaves 52% of the LGBTQ population vulnerable to being fired on the basis of who they are, or who they love.

This post offers several strategies for businesses to expand these sanctuaries.
