More and more people are looking for employers that offer exciting opportunities to travel or relocate in a globalised world. Multinational organisations can offer just that, but at the same time many operate in countries where the experiences of LGBT people differ greatly.
An LGBT network group (sometimes called a Business Resource Group) is an internal forum for employees at all levels of an organisation. These groups play a crucial role in advancing workplace equality in the UK and across the world. They are led by LGBT employees, so if your organisation doesn’t have one, you might be able to set one up.
It’s understandable that your first question when job hunting may not be: ‘Is this employer LGBT inclusive?’. You’re more likely to be concerned with how well respected the organisation is, the opportunities for development, and perhaps the salary.

Sometimes bi people are even faced with intrusive questions and negative stereotypes claiming that they are ‘greedy’ or ‘indecisive’.
