Insights Into Supplier Inclusion & Diversity Re-cap

29 March 2023

Thank you to everyone who attended the “Insights Into Supplier Inclusion & Diversity” event on March 16th, 2023, at the beautiful Royal Groote Industrieele Club in Amsterdam and online around the world. This event was co-hosted by the BeNeLux LGBTIQ+ Business Chamber and Workplace Pride, and was made possible with generous support from EGLCC, the European LGBTIQ Chamber of CommerceGGLBC, the German LGBTIQ+ Business Chamber, and The Roze Ambassade.

There were more than 75 participants in attendance, which demonstrates the importance of this topic to Workplace Pride members, and entrepreneurs in the BeNeLux business community.

A special thank you to the following speakers for their knowledge and expertise:

This event, moderated by Workplace Pride Executive Director David Pollard, gave specific insight and unique perspectives from businesses, large and small.

As 52% of individuals want to work for a company with a Supplier Inclusion and Diversity program, the key message of this event is clear – our European business community in BeNeLux and beyond is eager and ready to dive deeper into this topic. The session showed that large corporations have a great deal to offer smaller LGBTIQ+ owned businesses when working together in a mutually-beneficial way. Likewise, it was demonstrated that corporations can benefit immensely by having closer business contacts with LGBTIQ+ entrepreneurs.
