Présentation de l'éditeur

Part memoir and part social criticism, The Glass Closet addresses the issue of homophobia that still pervades corporations around the world and underscores the immense challenges faced by LGBT employees.

In The Glass Closet, Lord John Browne, former CEO of BP, seeks to unsettle business leaders by exposing the culture of homophobia that remains rampant in corporations around the world, and which prevents employees from showing their authentic selves.

Drawing on his own experiences, and those of prominent members of the LGBT community around the world, as well as insights from well-known business leaders and celebrities, Lord Browne illustrates why, despite the risks involved, self-disclosure is best for employees—and for the businesses that support them. Above all, The Glass Closet offers inspiration and support for those who too often worry that coming out will hinder their chances of professional success.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting, honest, insightful and useful 19 juin 2014
Par Sean Strub - Publié sur
The Glass Closet is an excellent insight into what it means to be gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender in a corporate environment. John Browne shares key lessons through relating incidents experienced by LGBT people who work in business, ranging from blatant discrimination and stigmatization to more subtle expressions of heterosexual privilege that even straight people who are pro equality will find instructive. But the narrative that ties the book together, to which Browne returns throughout the book, is his own journey that eventually results in a spectacular scandal-infused outing that was not his choice. The themes of shame and fear are familiar, but written in an interesting way, from the perspective of a fast-rising corporate star. But the part of the book that most struck me was how reflective Browne became after he was outed in such a painful manner ("I wish I had been brave enough to come out earlier…") and then shares and explains his understanding how a corporate workplace that is safe and supportive of LGBT is good business, ultimately leading to greater profitability. The book is well-written, very readable, carrying me from chapter to chapter with ease, thorough (the sections on transgender issues are addressed in a sophisticated and appropriate manner) and all that much more interesting because it is coming from an unlikely activist voice. This is the first book I've read about LGBT issues in the workplace that is truly current, reflecting the vast changes in the cultural from even the past few years. A corporate HR department that doesn't make The Glass Closet required reading for their team is an HR office that is lagging behind.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 even those who were persecuted or worse for it 1 juillet 2014
Par Joseph M. Evangelisti - Publié sur
I just finished reading Lord Browne's book, which is a compelling and candid personal story -- as well as an interesting and enjoyable read. But it's much more than that. It's a clear-eyed lesson about bringing your true self to work, respecting people who are different, not being a prisoner of a secret, and not underestimating the kindness and acceptance of colleagues, friends and families. I was inspired by this book and believe it can positively impact companies and lives around the world. I have never met someone who regretted coming out, even those who were persecuted or worse for it. In this great book, Lord Browne makes a business case, a moral case and happiness case for coming out and living a life to its fullest.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Perfect Primer 19 juillet 2014
Par John N. Catlett - Publié sur
John Browne's book is not speaking only to his peers who control the world's largest and most influential companies. He makes the case for businesses of all types and sizes to recognize, unleash and encourage the talents of all their employees. This text is also the perfect primer for any gay man or woman in business who has yet to decide whether or just how to step out of the glass closet--for their own good, the good of their company and in the long run the good of all society.

I was hoping that John would give us more details of his personal life and some of the uncomfortable situations that he had been in to keep himself in the closet. I have not yet finished the book, but he has been rehashing a lot of gay history that any gay person in the USA would already be aware of. I have to admit, I do like his writing style and he keeps the old history interesting - but for me this is not new information. I bought the book to learn more about him!

PS - I am a gay man and in the Petroleum Business myself and happily OUT at work.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 In time for redemption. Too late to be a pundit. 5 juillet 2014

Lord Browne had the opportunity to be courageous and to have impact when he led BP. It is commendable that he has subsequently become more open, but doing so after the fact diminishes the message and the meaning.

Unfortunately, the way he chose to lead his life and relationships provides a very incomplete and dare I say anachronistic perspective on the real GLBTQ issues in business, and he is not much better informed today. Better to continue to keep a low profile if there is nothing meaningful too contribute beyond what he has chosen to reveal about his own life.

And, he should know that it took many many brave people in commerce and other fields who put themselves in harms way, often sacrificing their own jobs or careers to pave the way for social justice, or to protect others less senior and influential in their own firms who were at risk. Without standing on the shoulders of these leaders, it would not be possible for Lord Browne to have met with acceptance in the business community and to publish this book, when he declared himself.
