Discrimination For A Gay Sales Professional

Listen to “Descrimination for a Gay Sales Professional” on Spreaker.


Let’s talk about #metoo for a second – a lot of harassment in the IT industry. I can share with you as a gay male, it was extremely difficult to fit in because they always looked at me as -the gay guy – he’s no good, but I was good. People did not like to see a gay guy thriving and also over achieving their sales quota.
