As businesses compete for talent, expand into new markets and accelerate innovation, diversity and inclusiveness is a source of competitive advantage. When people are valued for who they are, we are able to create high-performing teams that deliver better business results.
Research shows that when organizations take steps to create a supportive work environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) employees, they achieve better business results.
Join us for a panel discussion about the potential we can achieve through LGBT inclusion at work and the practical steps that global companies are taking to “make it real.”
Our panelists will draw on the findings of a multi-company think tank convened by EY to explore leading practices in the corporate sector. Global companies have made great strides over the past decade in developing and adopting inclusive corporate values statements, personnel policies and codes of conduct regarding LGBT employees.
However, extending LGBT-inclusive policies and practices beyond corporate hubs still raises a number of legal, cultural and organizational challenges.
Find out what it takes to drive change at the organizational level, and what we can do as individuals — LGBT and allies alike — to team and lead inclusively.
