LGBTIQ+ inclusion in India is an evolution in the making and nowhere is that more true than in the workplace. To take into account this dynamic and the activities of many of our members in the country, Workplace Pride will be organising our 2nd conference entitled “Demystifying LGBTIQ+ Workplace Inclusion in India” on March 21st of 2024 in Bengaluru. We will be working with Shell, as host of the event and a leading member of the Foundation, who, like many other organisations are striving to create workplaces in India where all employees can truly be themselves, including those from the LGBTIQ+ community.

With a backdrop of strong tradition, modernity and emerging economic might all in one, India is also at an important national crossroads as it moves towards greater equality for LGBTIQ+ people in society and what this means for workplaces. The challenges this represents for employers of all types, ranging from support and benefits to recruitment and retention, cannot be overstated. Navigating this future though does not need to be a mystery nor does it have to be done in isolation.

This highly-interactive conference will bring together major private and public sector employers in India, international experts, and many representatives from the well-developed LGBTIQ+ Civil Society in the country. All of these stakeholders will examine the issue of creating welcoming workplaces in preparation for the business and societal changes to come. The full-day conference will take place on Thursday, 21 March, 2024.

A selection of the presentations will be available post conference.

After the Conference in India, there will be a selection of visuals available here.
