An open working community also gives room for diversity in gender. Not everybody necessarily considers themselves male or female in the traditional sense. Gender is part of everyone’s identity and therefore it is also important for the functioning of the working community.
Sexual and gender minorities refer, for example, to people who are
gay, lesbian and bisexual
Sexual orientation is not necessarily evident from the outside, and one need not talk about sexual orientation at the workplace. Family and relationships are, however, an important part of coffee table and corridor talk at workplaces.
