We believe everybody should be welcomed and accepted for who they are. Research from Stonewall suggests that more than one-third of LGBT+ people hide who they are at work for fear of discrimination. At Standard Chartered, we run Allies Networks to provide support for our LGBT+ colleagues. Adrian and Raheel, who met through our Allies Network, are now friends as well as colleagues. In recognition of the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT), they wanted to share their story.
