Event description
The Proud Trust Presents… Building Better, Sustainable and Empowered LGBT+ Staff Networks

About this Event

‘23% of survey respondents have experienced a negative reaction due to LGBTphobia in their workplace’ (National Research by UK Government Equality Office, 2018)

‘54% of people in construction are not comfortable being out at work’ (Building Equality, 2019)

‘Seven out of ten LGBT+ workers experience sexual harassment at work and almost one in eight LGBT+ women (12 per cent) reported being seriously sexually assaulted or raped at work. Two thirds of these were never reported.’ (TUC, 2019)

LGBT+ staff networks can help people:

- Feel happier in the workplace and challenge discrimination

- Bring their whole selves to work and feel safe to do so

- Connect with other LGBT+ people in the workplace

- Make a changes within a company for colleagues and customers

- Support the wider LGBT+ community through workplace fundraising

- Help foster understanding within the wider workforce and cultivate more allies

- Support the development of corporate diversity and inclusion policy and practice

Join us for a one-day conference with guest speakers from a number of different LGBT+ staff networks across different sectors, for a chance to network with others who are setting up LGBT+ staff networks and for those who have established networks in place who want to develop these further.

Key note speakers include:

- Professor Emeritus Sue Sanders (Founder of LGBT History Month in the UK)

- Sally Carr MBE (Director and Founder of The Proud Trust)

- Representatives from Building Equality, Irwin Mitchell, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and from the Greater Manchester Combined Authority and Government.
