Research Demonstrates the Benefits of LGBT-Affirming Workplaces in China

Paul Tsai China Center Senior Fellow and Research Scholar in Law Darius Longarino recently published “Uncovering: The Economic Benefits of LGBT Workplace Inclusion” in Frontiers of Law in China, a journal managed by Renmin University Law School.

READ: “Uncovering: The Economic Benefits of LGBT Workplace Inclusion”

In the article, Longarino synthesizes social science research demonstrating the benefits LGBT-affirming workplaces have for individuals, businesses, and entire economies. Longarino recommends directions for future research and policy responses in China and the United States for improving protections and support for LGBT workers. It is the first article in Frontiers of Law in China focused on LGBT issues.  

Prior to joining the Paul Tsai China Center, Longarino worked for the American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative in Beijing where he managed legal reform programs promoting LGBT rights and worked cooperatively with a number of Chinese public interest law organizations.
