Yesterday, The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) unveiled a snapshot of its latest research around the status of LGBT people in the business world. The report, entitled Pride and Prejudice: Agents of change, is being released in conjunction with The Economist Events’ second annual Pride & Prejudice Summit, a global 24-hour event being held on March 23rd in, London, Hong Kong and New York. Participants will include key speakers from companies including IBM, TD Bank, Warby Parker, Goldman Sachs, Anheuser Busch, Prezi, and other high-profile government officials.

The Agents of change report, aligned to many of the topics being debated at the summit, was based on a global survey of more than 1,000 executives.
