More importantly, a study says that a sense of belonging is key at work. Still, more than half of LGBTQ+ employees feel the need to be closeted. I'll talk to LGBTQ+ workers about what they actually need for leaders/executives to be better allies in the workplace—beyond Pride Month, when companies tout DE&I initiatives.
