ISSUE 03 / JULY 2019

Dear *|FNAME|* *|LNAME|*,

With more than 300 attendees, Workplace Pride’s 2019 International Conference on June 28th was a truly inspiring event. Many thanks go to our member, KLM who hosted the event in a spectacular airplane hangar at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.

The conference is the Foundation’s annual flagship event at which our members share best practices, lead and participate in workshops, hear fascinating speakers, network and (re)connect. Most importantly though it reaffirms that, by working together, employers and the LGBTI community can drive change globally.

In this issue, we focus on both the conference content for participants and give a recap for those that could not come this year. You’ll also read about upcoming events and other highlights that help us to spread the news about LGBTI workplace inclusion around the world.

Happy reading!

David Pollard
Executive Director, Workplace Pride
