Research: The Upsides of Disclosing Your Religion, Sexual Orientation, or Parental Status at Work
Source of Publication
Harvard Business Review
Many important aspects of your identity are not immediately visible to those around you. When it comes to your religion, sexual orientation, or parental status, how should you approach the decision of whether — and how — to disclose your identity to your colleagues? In this piece, the authors discuss the potential benefits of revealing your most authentic self in the workplace, as well as some of the ways in which certain organizations can be less supportive of these kinds of disclosures. Ultimately, there are no one-size-fits-all solutions: Each employee must make their own determination as to whether the advantages of disclosing their various identities outweigh the risks in their specific environment.
