It is important to understand the challenges faced by people who have a different orientation. It is important to understand the hardships that many have to go through to work their way up in the workplace. Many workers face many unique challenges that influence their careers and workplace experiences. There is an ongoing pattern that many face and can be stressful on deciding decision about whether or not or even when to disclose their sexual identity in the workplace. The majority of the people in the LGBTQ community try to conceal their sexual identity to some certain degree at work, but others try to at least make it known or have people at least be aware. It has to be hard on some people to talk about this topic and if we don’t have a friendly and welcoming environment it makes it that much more challenging for many people to feel welcome. The second challenge that affects the careers and workplace experiences of LGBTQ workers is that discrimination against LGBTQ employees who are gay, or simply appear to be gay, is legal in most workplaces in the United States and abroad. As a consequence, LGBTQ employees are particularly vulnerable to Discrimination is another big issue that might affect many LGBTQ people in their career development. Since discrimination against LGBTQ workers is widespread and something that is very common, being able to be open and aware of someone’s sexuality shouldn’t have to be a bad thing and shouldn’t make someone feel less of themselves.
