Supporting LGBT+ at Work
Venue & Event Details
Two decades into the twenty-first century, LGBT+ identity can still present significant disadvantage in the workplace.
Around a quarter of respondents to the National LGBT Survey 2017 reported that they had experienced a negative or mixed reaction from others in the workplace. Research by Stonewall, meanwhile, reveals that over a third of LGBT+ staff have hidden their sexual orientation or gender identity at work for fear of discrimination.
Staff cannot reach their full potential when concerned about, or experiencing, bias and unfair treatment. Are you fully equipped to support your LGBT+ staff and ensure their wellbeing is prioritised? At ‘Supporting LGBT+ Colleagues at Work: Pride in Diversity’, you will receive practical advice in ensuring that LGBT+ staff feel comfortable bringing their whole selves to work. Actionable strategies for building inclusivity and countering bias will be shared by expert speakers, allowing you to drive better individual, business and organisational outcomes.
