The Aequalis 2017 report, best practices in the management of LGTBI diversity in companies and institutions, is the first report in the Spanish State that includes, from 2015, the best practices in LGTBI diversity developed by companies and institutions during the year.

Data from the European Union indicate that around 50% of LGTBI people prefer not to disclose their sexual identity in the workplace due to fear of discrimination, and also fear that penalize their professional development.

According to the Nielsen report, between an 9 and an 14% of the general population is LGTBI.

Contrary to Anglo-Saxon cultures, where inclusion begins with large corporations, permeates society and materializes in legislative advances, in Spain the itinerary is reversed. It has begun with the laws, has followed by the sensitization of society and now is the time to catch up with the inclusion of LGTBI diversity in the workplace.

• Comply with legality.
• Talent management.
• Companies that have solid Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policies and, specifically, diversity, cannot fail to create safe work environments "safe place to work" that allow each one to be who they are.
• Discrimination affects the labor rights of workers.
• Be attractive for the niche market LGTBI, trendsetter.
