Coming out at work

Category: LGBT inclusion, LGBT+, pride, LGBTQ Inclusion, LGBT Community, LGBTQ Community, Colt, LGBTQ Equality


As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, the question of whether or not to come out at work is complicated – as of 2018, Stonewall reported that over a third of LGBTQ+ people don’t come out in their workplace for fear of discrimination. So how do we create a space where people can not only come out, but thrive in their environment? Further speaker details below.




About the Full Picture

The Full Picture is a podcast from Colt Technology Services combining individual stories and expert opinions to make sense of the world around us. We’re excited to cover new ground in this series, such as the trans experience of the workplace, modern masculinity and coming out at work.

Giving every voice a platform to be heard and building an environment where our people feel comfortable bringing their whole selves to work is a core focus for our business. Producing this podcast is our way of taking one meaningful step towards that, through education, communication and listening.

The Full Picture blends personal stories from our Colties, their own experiences and unique perspectives, along with the views and insights from experts within our industry and beyond. Episodes will focus on topics that mean something to our people and the workforces of other organisations such as mental health, neurodiversity in tech, changing conversations about race, to name a few.
