It’s Monday and you’re at work.  
Your colleague asks “How was your weekend?”  
You think about your weekend, carefully filtering the details before you speak.
You don’t feel entirely comfortable sharing honestly.
This is the reality for many LGBTQ+ people, according to diversity and inclusion consultant Vessy Tasheva.
We were honored to speak to Vessy for the latest version of the Inclusion Works podcast, where she shared her insight into how companies can get inclusion right by taking action, getting senior buy-in and mixing culture and business to create a space where everyone - and in particular, members of LGBTQ+ communities, feel like they belong.
