It's all very nice to wax lyrical about inclusiveness. The reality, however, is that business, by it's very definition, is nothing if not opportunistic. The one mantra that all businesses have in common is profit and, for the vast majority, it's profit at any cost. So, it doesn't matter what one's gender identity, sexual orientation, yada, yada, is because, from the employer's perspective, it's about what works for the company and not about what works for the employee. Those who have been laid off or made redundant in a merger or acquisition will attest to that.
