WHAT WE DO
Based in Amsterdam, the city best known for LGBTI inclusion, Workplace Pride activities include both the Netherlands and many countries around the world. From Poland to Thailand and from Suriname to Belgium, we continue to use our more than 10 years of experience and accumulated knowledge to push the boundaries of LGBTI inclusion in the workplace.
Participation in the annual Benchmark survey is free of charge. Participants receive individual summaries of their results presented in a form intended for management decision-making.

CALL TO ACTION
Organizations that sign the Declaration of Amsterdam are saying to the world “we believe in workplaces where LGBTI people can be themselves and are striving to make this happen in our organization”
GETTING THE FACTS
We are also very proud to have created the world’s first University Chair dedicated solely to LGBTI workplace Inclusion. This Chair, along with our other on-going research activities will continue to contribute to the advancement of this topic.
START AT THE BEGINNING
Recognizing this, the Foundation has created the “Young@WorkplacePride” program to bridge the gap for younger LGBTI people in the workplace, but also the help employers understand how they can better communicate to this next generation of employees and leaders. The program has all sorts of activities for Workplace Pride members, ensuring that the changing world of work that we live in also takes young LGBTI people into account.
WOMEN AT THEIR BEST
The Women@WorkplacePride program strives to do just that! Through targeted events with unique speakers, focused workshops in Workplace Pride’s conferences and participation in research projects, Women@WorkplacePride continues to be a driving force the Foundation.
Decades ago, it seemed that LGBT people simply did not choose for a career in technology. Now we know better: today we see many LGBT professionals working and contributing to the success in technology-based organizations.
Comparing this sector to others, we can see differences in cultural aspects like networking and interpersonal skills, and in success factors, which are changing rapidly as well. Traditional, hierarchical organizations are now replaced with ones that are network-based, and interpersonal skills and personal branding are becoming more and more important. This also means that remaining “safely” in the closet is more difficult.
TECH has been a focus in various workshops during Workplace Pride conferences, and in the 2016 Canal Pride in Amsterdam the boat “Building Diversity” made LGBT-professionals in the building industry very visible.
About one out of three Workplace Pride employers have a strong connection to technology, and we are sure that increased visibility for LGBT employees in technical roles will be rewarded and will strengthen our employers
