Declaration of Amsterdam

Launched in 2011, the Declaration has proven to be a useful tool for employers and civil society organizations that are striving to create more inclusive working environments for LGBTIQ+ people around the world. The Declaration promotes:

  • Inclusive corporate cultures where LGBTIQ+ employees feel valued, can be their authentic selves and realize their full potential
  • Working environments for LGBTIQ+ people that go beyond minimum legal requirements of equality
  • Active leadership from straight [heterosexual] allies and LGBTIQ+ role models who visibly support LGBTIQ+-inclusive workplaces
  • Dedicated, declared and active collaboration between employers AND LGBTIQ+ employees to realize mutually beneficial  improvements
