March Newsletter Issue 01




ISSUE 01 / MARCH 2020 The first newsletter of 2020 is here and there is plenty of good and important news to share with you. We started off the new decade with a New Year’s reception in Utrecht at VodafoneZiggo’s HQ. We showcased new members from several different sectors.

We launched the 2020 Global Benchmark and Young@workplacepride had their first event of the year!

Of course, even Workplace Pride is affected by the Coronavirus, which means that our upcoming Taiwan conference has been postponed to August 20th.

However, if all goes well, we are still on track for our Workplace Pride International Conference to be held at the WTC in Rotterdam on June 19th! Enjoy!

Speed Dating Mentoring Event at Uber Young@Workplace Pride’s team held their first event of the year at Uber. Aimed at young professionals needing guidance and/or to guide someone in need of help as they start out in their professional life whilst being LGBTI.

Taiwan Conference News!

Very sadly, due to the need to take precautions around the Coronavirus, the Taiwan Conference has been moved to the 20th of August.

We are monitoring the situation via the CDC and using the postponement as a way to fine-tune the proceedings and secure a feature-packed event with a great line-up of speakers and workshops!
