Today gay men and women in the Western world enjoy greater acceptance and legal protections than ever before. Yet an alarming number of businessmen and women choose to remain closeted at work. Lord Browne, the former chief executive of BP, will discuss his book The Glass Closet, in which he explores what holds them back. Drawing on his experiences as a closeted gay man in the oil industry, and the experiences of other prominent executives from around the world, he argues that coming out is best for employees and the companies that support them.
