I'm the highest level manger at my work site. I work for a nationwide corporation. Periodically, as part of diversity awareness, I have to conduct a meeting, say on Black history month, Hispanic month, etc.
I am required to conduct an upcoming one to my staff on Gay pride as part of this diversity initiative. After reviewing the meeting materials,** it's a lot of propaganda, promotes/supports gay marriage and same sex couple adoption.** This is extremely problematic.
It is not optional, it would be considered part of my job responsiblities. I live in a rural area with high unemployment, and very few job opportunities. My income is the primary one for our family.
I sympathize. However, as another poster said, it matters what the "promotion" consists of. If it is a description of company benefits, then you simply state that the company offers them If it is a corporate position that those things are good, than you can say "the company thinks xyz" without indicating that you too think these are good things.
This is like the question of your culpability in shopping at a company that donates money to a cause like "gay rights" or pro-abortion groups. Since although you are a senior person at this location, you aren't senior enough to influence corporate policy, you would just state with the policy currently is. You then use whatever small influence you do have to try and get it changed.
With your actions during the day to day workings of the company, you can show your co-workers what you truly believe - thatall people should be treated with respect and dignity, but that some actions are incorrect (gravely disordered). Although hopefully no one is discussing their sex-life at work!
