How can you ensure safety of your LGBTQAI+ employees?

Copenhagen World Pride 2021 has officially commenced!

While this is a time of celebration, from a security risk and corporate social responsibility perspective, world pride also warrants a serious reflection on the safety of LGBTQAI+ employees.

In collaboration with our data provider Riskline, we released a list of countries where LGBTQAI+ habitants, workers, or travellers are at extreme risk. But this is only the tip of the iceberg. Riskline furthermore reports that from the 225+ countries and territories tracked:

  • in 70 homosexuality is illegal

  • in 14 there are no regulations at all

  • in 110 there are no protection laws

  • same-sex marriage is only legal in 47 of them

  • in 104 countries LGBTQAI+ is not socially accepted

  • there are 12 countries that punish homosexuality by death

Due to GDPR regulations, companies cannot force enquiries on sexual orientation. However, if the company is operating in a country that might put a LGBTQAI+ employee at risk, it is crucial to recognize this risk and apply adequate security risk mitigation.
