工作场所中的LGBT

达沃斯—当苹果公司CEO库克(Tim Cook)在去年宣布他是同性恋的时候,我收到了来自全球各地的企业高管的电邮和电话短信的狂轰滥炸。作为“出柜”的安永高管,所有人都希望了解我如何看待这对于女同性恋、男同性恋、双性恋和变性人(lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender,LGBT)的全球包容意义。毕竟,苹果公司高居《财富》500强企业第五位。这标志着“薰衣草天花板”(lavender ceiling)的结束吗?

在其《彭博商业周刊》的文章中,库克描述了成为同性恋是如何影响他的:“我是同性恋,我骄傲,我认为成为同性恋是上帝赐予我的最大礼物。身为同性恋让我能够更深地理解这对少数群体意味着什么,也为我提供了一个窗口一窥其他少数群体在应对日常生活中的挑战。”

我自己关于“与众不同”的体验是多样的。和库克一样,身为少数群体启发了我做包容性领导的倾向。与库克不同,从前,除了没有出柜,我还是女人和内向者,我的政治学总是与我在男性外向者主导的职业中的同事不同。自2011年出柜以来,我就可以公开地做真自我,也对他人更加真诚。这让我成为更好的领导。而在一个全球组织的领导岗位上出柜也为我提供了一个公开讨论一系列广泛问题的平台。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
