Stonewall Workplace Conference London 2020

Ensure everyone can achieve their potential at work.

Stonewall's research* shows that lesbian, gay, bi and trans ( LGBT) people still face challenges at work.

More than one in three LGBT people have hidden their identity at work because they fear discrimination. This figure rises to two in three bi people and one in every two trans people. LGBT people experience discrimination in areas such as recruitment and promotion. They also face negative comments from colleagues, service users and customers.

Organisations that take a holistic approach to LGBT inclusion see real results. They find that they're able to attract and retain the best talent. In environments where staff can be themselves, innovation, team cohesion and motivation follow.

Stonewall's workplace inclusion experts have been working with employers for 20 years. We've developed best practice working with over 800 organisations around the globe.

We use this to design our sector-leading London Workplace Conference, taking place at the QEII Centre in Westminster on 3 April. This event is a unique chance for you to create a practical roadmap to a more inclusive workplace.

Our Workplace Conference is a unique chance to hear from inspiring people who bring our work to life and empower our audiences to create change. Our keynote speakers will be announced soon. Last year we welcomed Penny Mordaunt, Former Secretary of State; Nour Shaker, Product Development - Public Cloud Services, Vodafone; and Hafsa Qureshi, Ministry of Justice & Stonewall Bi Role Model of the Year to share their insights. We also held an LGBT and Faith panel during the closing session.

 

I particularly enjoyed hearing about the real life experiences of the speakers which were truly inspiring

Global Streaming Service

LGBT inclusion is equally important across an organisation's global footprint. However, differing legal and social contexts mean we can't take a one size fits all approach. Our global LGBT inclusion live stream enables you or your colleagues to access our specialist programme of content on global LGBT inclusion either live or recorded from anywhere in the world.
