Schadendorf, J: GaYme Changer
How the Lgbt+ Community and Their Allies Are Changing the Global Economy
The LGBT+ community: for a long time marginalized, stigmatized and criminalized - today the ultimate champions of creativity, diversity and innovation in a highly competitive world. In addition, corporate social responsibility (CSR) and ethical demands for organizational inclusivity have now become economic directives every organization would like to attain. Gay, lesbian, transgender, bisexual and queer individuals are symbols of diversity and economic power - true GaYme Changers - developing the global economy faster and for the better. Supported by up-to-date research and illustrated by fascinating stories, Jens Schadendorf has traced the LGBT+ community and an increasing number of their alies from across the globe to discover the start of a revolution. It becomes clear, even in times of hostility and resistance, it is economically and ethically beneficial for companies and societies everywhere in the world, to let LGBT+ members develop into dynamic forces - rooted in new forms of cooperation for game changing results.
