June 8, 2015
“Despite much progress in the recent years, gay rights issues around the world remain a serious problem. The Glass Closet by John Browne is a brave and fascinating book that shows how business can lead the way in promoting gay rights and why being yourself is best for business and for you.”
—Sir Richard Branson, Founder of Virgin Group
