The preparation of the past few months is beginning to pay off! We have re-vamped our website to make it easier to get the information you need, and have launched the 2017 Global Benchmark Survey to help organizations measure their global LGBT policies and practices.
Unfortunately, LGBTI people in the world continue to have wake-up calls. Here in the Netherlands, one of the most advanced countries in the world for LGBTI rights, two men were brutally beaten for holding hands in public, while in Chechnya, a number of men have been killed and many imprisoned for being gay.
Nonetheless, progress continues! We’re pleased to welcome Ahold-Delhaize as the newest member of the Foundation and are launching a new program ‘Tech@WorkplacePride’ to encourage interaction among technically-focused LGBTI among our members.
