The Lavender Ceiling atop the Global Closet: Human Resource Development and Lesbian Expatriates
Gedro, Julie
Human Resource Development Review, v9 n4 p385-404 Dec 2010
This literature review will examine international assignments as career development opportunities and uncover multiple issues and considerations with respect to lesbians and international assignments. There is a clear interest in the fields of management and human resource management in the privileges, challenges, and opportunities of international assignments. International assignments serve as a function of HRD because they provide grooming for the most senior management positions in corporations. However, there is little to no research or exploration of the multiple considerations faced by lesbians who seek and engage in international assignments.
