Roughly 40% of LGBTQ employees say they are closeted at work while 75% say they experience negative day-to-day workplace interactions related to their LGBTQ identity.

Those are some of the findings in a survey conducted by the Boston Consulting Group and New York City’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center. Releasing the results on Tuesday, the organizations said the survey involved 2,000 LGBTQ employees and 2,000 straight employees across the U.S. and represented a snapshot of diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
