Onboarding of Young LGBTI Employees and Allies

Post Date: September 11, 2018

On September 7th, Young@WorkplacePride organized an onboarding event hosted by Cycas Hospitality at the Moxy Hotel in Amsterdam.

Speaker of the evening was Bart Cloosen from VodafoneZiggo, who discussed his experience of creating an LGBTI-friendly image within the workplace, and what he finds important when onboarding LGBTI people and their allies.

A great example of VodafoneZiggo’s inclusive induction program is the use of a specific module where they explain how to deal with customers that appear male in passport photos but present themselves as female when meeting face to face or during phone calls.

During the event and the mini break-out session, critical questions were asked and comparisons made, which led to lively discussions and new insights among those present.

Young@WorkplacePride would like to thank everyone who participated and made the evening possible! A special thank you to Cycas Hospitality and Moxy Houthavens for hosting us.

Until next time!
