Dear Readers, 

The year has gotten off to great start with our New Year’s reception hosted by the City of Amsterdam. Hot on its heels was the truly game-changing  Colorful Workplace Conference in Kenya. Today sees the launch of the 2018 Global Benchmark; our 5th edition, while Connecting Members events at Booking. com and EY are in the weeks ahead.

LGBTI inclusion at work is now a 24 hour/global activity that continues to make a positive change for LGBTI people in the workplace and the organisations that employee them. With this in mind, our 2018 International Conference on 18 May will have the theme: “The Changing Face of LGBTI Workplace Inclusion“: Watch this space!

Executive Director

Kenya Conference Breaks Ground
By bringing together civil society, the LGBT community, and, most importantly (and for the first time in Kenya) the business world, the conference highlighted that change is on the horizon for the country. Workplace Pride and the other organisers applaud the courage of Safaricom and their head of HR, Paul Kasimu, for supporting the concept of people being able to be themselves at work, also in Kenya.READ MORE
