This year marks 50 years since the first Pride march in the UK in 1972. It’s a good time to celebrate what has been achieved and how far we’ve come. However there is still work to be done in the fight for LGBTQ+ equality. Businesses must continue to strive for inclusive workplaces that allow all employees to thrive.
These speakers share their experiences and expert insights, either as members of the LGBTQ+ community themselves, or as champions for diversity, and explain how employers can become effective allies to the LGBTQ+ community in the fight for equality at work.
