2017 marked the second time that LGBT diversity and inclusion made the agenda of the World Economic Forum in Davos. Having the issue top of mind among the global business elite is an indicator of progress, but uncertainty wielded by the political and economic climate has made the outlook for business and LGBT inclusion unclear. Will businesses continue to make a commitment to LGBT inclusion in a world where there is growing populist resistance to it? What should be the priorities for business in 2017 when it comes to putting inclusion policy into practice?
