Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Employees at Microsoft

GLEAM is the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) employee affinity group at Microsoft.

Facts About GLEAM

Microsoft has been a pioneer in workplace diversity. It was one of the first companies in the world to offer employee benefits to same-sex domestic partners and to include sexual orientation in its corporate nondiscrimination policy. Since 1989, Microsoft has supported and sponsored gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender issues at Microsoft. In 1993 an organized employee resource group—Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Employees at Microsoft (GLEAM)—was launched. GLEAM now has more than 700 members.
