Diversity and inclusion are essential for building a modern, high-performing public service. While much progress has been made, the LGBTQ2+ communities still face challenges with heterosexism, genderism, transphobia and homophobia. Marginalization based on sexual orientation and gender identity can cause many LGBTQ2+ people to remain "closeted" or to feel unsafe at work.
