Dear Readers, 

2017 has proven to be a very active year for LGBTI workplace inclusion! Seven new employers joined Workplace Pride to help in the effort towards greater LGBTI inclusion and, with the generous support of KPN, the Foundation kicked off its Special Chair at Leiden University. Workplace Pride organised conferences in India, Belgium and the Philippines, published dozens of best practices from the Global Benchmark, launched Tech@Workplace Pride and cooperated with universities, NGO’s and businesses to help progress the cause. All of these milestones were achieved through the dedication of employers, employees and LGBTI community members from all types of organisation and from all walks of life. 

Cheers to you all!

David Pollard
Executive Director
