Taiwan Conference – Trailblazing LGBTI Workplace inclusion in Asia – October 27th 2020

27th October 2020 @ 8:30 AM 11:30 AM Europe/Amsterdam

Same-sex marriage is now a fact in Taiwan. As the first nation in Asia to take this step, what are the implications for the workplace and how does this fit into the bigger picture of Diversity and Inclusion? How should multinationals, local companies, as well as government and non-for-profit organizations active in the country engage with this topic and with the LGBTI people they employ? And now, within the context of social and geo-political change surrounding the global pandemic, how can all stakeholders work together to build on marriage equality in Taiwan and continue its leadership role for LGBTI inclusion across Asia?

This unique, bi-national and multi-media conference within a global context is entitled, “Taiwan – Trailblazing LGBTI Workplace Inclusion in Asia – Marriage equality in times of social change”. The timely event is being organised against the backdrop of ever greater diverse and inclusive societies and workplaces. Set in the midst of a global pandemic, ongoing challenges with gender equality and the heightened awareness of racial inequality around the world, this event brings both the challenges as well as the opportunities of greater workplace inclusion to the forefront for everyone.

Come join us, our distinguished speakers, international guests and many stakeholders to build on the momentum of marriage equality in Taiwan. Together we will explore the current landscape of change, and reinforce Taiwan’s leadership role for LGBTI inclusion across Asia. 

This groundbreaking event includes a live conference in Taipei and a streamed potation will link Taipei with the Netherlands and allow participants from around the world to take part.
