Lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) employees represent a relatively large minority group and a significant proportion of the workforce, yet are understudied in mainstream management and organization research relative to other minority groups. Moreover, LGB employees report experiencing extensive discrimination and harassment in the workplace, and there is no comprehensive federal legislation prohibiting sexual orientation discrimination, i.e., heterosexism. In the current chapter, the literatures on heterosexism and LGB-supportive workplace policies are integrated with theory and research on transformational and heroic leadership. The overarching propositions developed from this chapter are that transformational and heroic leadership are directly and indirectly related to heterosexism through the successful implementation of LGB-supportive policies.
