For years businesses have been coming to terms with the fact that their presence and activities around the world have an increasingly visible impact in the communities where they work. This comes with a responsibility to their own employees, as well as to the local legislative and cultural environment; including LGBT+ people. In the wake of the many ongoing social changes such as the global pandemic, employers realise that the workplace narrative has changed. Attracting and retaining talent from all backgrounds, creating safe workplaces for all and being a good corporate citizen toward communities and clients, means that being silent is no longer an option.
Workplace Pride, with support from IBM, has created a report on Corporate Advocacy for LGBT+ Rights to assist our members and other businesses with their advocacy. The paper was created from extensive research and interviews with actual practitioners from business, diplomatic, and civil society communities. It takes a very practical approach by addressing organisational challenges and how to engage with the LGBT+ community itself while also including real-life examples of corporate advocacy initiatives around the world.
You are kindly invited to an explanatory webinar with the report’s author, Dr. Felicity Daly, and other stakeholders to take a practical dive into how businesses can truly make a difference.
