European Lesbian and Business Roundtable
Changing the world for better, improving the lives of (LGBTI) women in workplaces all over the world.



The Workplace Pride European Lesbian and Business Roundtable will bring together employers, employees and civil society to address specific challenges and opportunities for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex women at work.

We will share knowledge and inspiration on how companies and governments can play a key role in LGBT inclusion/ activism and how local activist can leverage the power of business for our joint cause of improving the lives of LGBTI people. We’ll explore how you can leverage the Workplace Pride Benchmark, the UN LGBT Business Standards, the Global Sustainable Development Goals and other initiatives for improving the lives of LGBTI people at and through workplaces around the world.

The learnings from our roundtable will be further explored at the European Lesbian* Conference which takes place 12-14 April in Kiev.
