A recent study commissioned by the state LGBT Chamber of Commerce found businesses with LGBT representation in senior leadership report better firm performance than those without.
Companies with one or more LGBT leaders reported greater levels of corporate social responsibility and environmental responsibility, quality of workforce and firm performance.
Participants were asked to respond to questions on a five-point ratings scale. The survey included 73 questions, focused on LGBT representation in leadership and topics like supportive workplace policies and corporate responsibility.
