Article "What a Study of French Auditors Shows About Homophobia at Work" highlights nuances of discrimination and how to tackle it.

A recent article from the Harvard Business Review looks into a French study about homophobia in the workplace. It is no news that homophobia may have critical implications in one's professional life and career, but the article points out some different aspects that often remain poorly debated.

Among the interesting nuances pointed out are the rhetoric of corporate performance and the varied ways in which tension or emotional stress that omitting or repressing one’s own identity may occur, not to mention the forms in which homophobia may silently become a common place in the office.
