Forging Queer Leaders: How the LGBTQIA+ Community Creates Impact from Adversity
Coming in May 2024 from Jessica Kingsley Publishers
This book explores the nexus of LGBTQ+ identities and leadership development. It shows why embracing LGBTQ+ leaders drives enhanced outcomes for individuals and organizations. What’s missing from most academic and popular literature is how LGBTQ+ experiences such as stigmatization, coming out, and transition, build leadership skills. We will show how LGBTQ+ leaders are forged through those experiences using the lenses of cognitive and development theories. These concepts are reinforced through interviews and stories from a set of nearly 100 LGBTQ+ leaders across industries, backgrounds, and experiences.
