Companies in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) are increasingly embracing diversity and inclusion as local political and cultural discrimination of LGBTQ+ communities result in a “brain drain” from the region, a new report finds.

The report from NGO Open For Business found a majority of 190 human resources professionals in Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Ukraine are aware of the commercial benefits of greater LGBTQ+ inclusion in the workplace.
