Schmidt, Steven W.; Githens, Rod P. – New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, 2010
The idea for a pre-conference session focusing on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) issues in human resource development (HRD) seemed an appropriate topic for an international conference on HRD.
