Study: LGBT Startups, Entrepreneurs at Risk for Discrimination

Startups founded by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) entrepreneurs are at risk for discrimination — affecting how they build trust with investors, where they locate their businesses and their ability to raise capital — according to a study from StartOut, a national non-profit organization that supports, educates and connects the LGBT entrepreneurship community.

This is the first study of its kind to shed light on the experiences of LGBT founders of high-growth companies. Combining quantitative and qualitative research methods, the study analyzes a survey of 140 LGBT entrepreneurs, a big-data set of more than 100,000 straight and LGBT founders and extended interviews intended to capture the personal stories of LGBT founders.

“By leveraging massive online datasets, we can clearly see the profoundly negative impact of discrimination on job creation, and the unintended boon it provides states like California and New York,” according to Vivienne Ming, StartOut’s Vice Chair and Socos Co-founder.

According to the study, Texas lost half of its future entrepreneurs with only one returning to operate his business in Austin, Texas. Texas represented the third largest sample of entrepreneurs in the study, with 8%, behind California (31%) and New York (29%). Seven of the eleven companies in the study’s sample from Texas, or 64%, are located in Austin.

KEY FINDINGS

Authenticity and Trust is Lacking in Key Relationships
37 percent of LGBT entrepreneurs funded or seeking funding are not “out” to investors. When asked why, nearly half said it was not relevant, and 12 percent thought it would hurt them. All investors interviewed said good personal rapport was critical to strong business relationships.

Jobs are Leaving “Discriminatory” States
From 2005 to 2014 more than 1 million jobs created by LGBT entrepreneurs left discriminatory states in favor of inclusive states. Of those, 78 percent moved to California, New York and Illinois. States with policies unfriendly to the LGBT community lose many if not all of their nascent growth entrepreneurs.

Lesbian Entrepreneurs are at a Distinct Disadvantage
12 percent of companies owned by GBT men have revenues of more than $5 million compared to 3 percent of LBT women. Meanwhile, 70 percent of female LBT founders raised less than $750,000 in funding compared to 47 percent of male GBT founders who raised more than $2 million.

“It seems politically correct to say that whom one happens to love is not relevant in business, but our research shows otherwise,” said University of Chicago Booth School of Business Clinical Professor Waverly Deutsch. “LGBT entrepreneurs specifically choose diversity-friendly states to start their companies; raise less capital than their straight counterparts and have to balance the risk of homophobia and discrimination with creating authentic relationships with investors, customers and partners.”

The study was conducted by University of Chicago Booth School of Business Clinical Professor Waverly Deutsch, a member of StartOut; StartOut Vice Chair, Vivienne Ming; Chicago Booth Adjunct Professor of Marketing and StartOut board member, Mary Shea; and StartOut board member and Chair Emeritus, Chris Sinton. It marks StartOut’s first step in its ongoing research program aimed at painting a clearer picture of the state of LGBT entrepreneurship in the U.S. This initial study was sponsored by Credit Suisse with support from Booth’s Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation.

“Economic equality is a critical step along the continuum of progress for LGBT people,” says StartOut’s Executive Director Andres Wydler. “Over the next few years, we will offer policy makers and business leaders the data and evidence they need to more fully understand the LGBT entrepreneurial experience.”

Transgender Americans Still Face Workplace Discrimination Despite Some Progress

While US companies have made significant strides in creating workplaces that are more inclusive of transgender individuals, discrimination and employment penalties remain.

Published

on

This article is republished from The Conversation under a CC BY-ND 4.0 license. Read the original article.

Activist Gwendolyn Ann Smith founded Transgender Day of Remembrance on November 20 to honor the memory of those whose lives were lost due to trans prejudice and hatred.

In that spirit of reflection, the day serves as an opportune time to examine how the opportunities and experiences of transgender individuals in the workplace have changed – particularly at a time when some government officials are openly advocating policies that discriminate against them.

I’ve been researching diversity and inclusion in a variety of settings including sports and work for nearly two decades. The good news is that my work and that of my peers shows transgender individuals have made significant strides in the workplace. The bad news is that many hurdles remain to equal opportunity and an end to discrimination.

SIGNS OF PROGRESS

Various indicators and signs point to meaningful improvements in the access, treatment and opportunities for transgender employees.

One such indicator is the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index, an annual assessment of policies and benefits for LGBT individuals in Fortune 500 companies. In 2002, only 3 percent of Fortune 500 companies had nondiscrimination polices based on gender identity. That figure was 83 percent in the most recent report, which came out in 2018.

The report also shows that most Fortune 500 companies now include transgender-inclusive medical benefits. In 2002, no companies offered such provisions.

Another measure of how much things have changed is in the willingness of corporate giants and their CEOs to oppose policies that discriminate against trandsgender individuals.

A recent example is when President Donald Trump said he would seek to legally define gender as immutably male or female. Coca-Cola, Apple, JP Morgan Chase and dozens of other major U.S. companies swiftly signaled their opposition.

Another is the backlash that has followed legislative efforts to limit the rights of transgender individuals to use pubic restrooms. North Carolina, for example, was estimated to lose US$3.76 billion over a dozen years after companies nixed plans to build facilities in the state or canceled concerts because of the “bathroom bill” lawmakers passed. They later repealed it.

My own research with a colleague shows why corporate America is taking a stand: Most consumers value inclusiveness. Participants in a study we conducted in 2014 interpreted LGBT-inclusive statements by organizations as a signal that the company valued all forms of diversity. As a result, the consumers’ attraction to the organization increased.

HURDLES REMAIN

Despite the progress, hurdles still exist, impeding full trans inclusion in the workplace.

A study I conducted with another colleague in 2017, for example, showed that, although attitudes toward transgender individuals have improved over time, they still lag behind perceptions toward lesbian, gay and bisexual individuals.

Legal scholars from UCLA’s Williams Institute have shown that transgender people earn less and are more likely to be unemployed than their cisgender peers – whose gender corresponds to their birth sex. In fact, in 2011, one in seven transgender individuals earned $10,000 or less a year, while the unemployment rate for trans people of color was nearly four times the national rate.

For those who are employed, they routinely face discrimination. In another study out of the Williams Institute, state law and policy director Christy Mallory and colleagues found that more than one in four reported being fired, passed over for promotion or not being hired in the past year because of their gender identity and expression.

Others are aware of the mistreatment. In a survey of Texans – a state where employment discrimination against transgender individuals is legal – 79 percent of the respondents agreed that LGBT individuals face workplace discrimination.

Texans are not alone. According to the Movement Advancement Project, an organization whose mission is to promote equality for all, 48 percent of LGBT individuals live in states lacking employment protections based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

MORE INCLUSIVE WORKPLACES

The evidence suggests transgender individuals have made progress in the workplace, but they still face considerable barriers. What, then, can employers do to create more inclusive environments?

Legal protections are key. Organizational psychologists Laura Barron and Michelle Hebl have shown that the presence of anti-discrimination ordinances and laws decrease bias in employment decision making. Absent federal protections, states and cities can ensure all people have employment protections, irrespective of their gender identity and expression.

Organizational leaders also make a difference. My research shows that leader advocacy and role modeling are critical when creating and sustaining an inclusion culture. Apple CEO Tim Cook, for example, has a history of strongly advocating for LGBT rights. It is little wonder, then, that Apple is routinely listed among the most LGBT-friendly companies.

Finally, co-workers play an important role, especially when they serve as allies. These are persons who advocate for transgender equality in the workplace and try to create welcoming, inclusive spaces. Allies seek to create social change, leading the charge at times and supporting their transgender colleagues in other instances.

Transgender inclusion helps all involved. Employee engagement and performance improves, as does their psychological and physical health. Diverse and inclusive organizations outperform their peers on objective measures of success, such as stock market performance.

Thus, the path forward – one that clears the hurdles in place and creates an inclusive environment – is one that can benefit everyone.
