Diversity and Inclusion has been an ongoing cause for the financial sector. Despite support for the LGBTQIA+ community making giant strides, and the industry striving to create a financial services sector that mirrors the society that it serves. 

However there are still steps to take to promote a culture of inclusivity and create LGBTQIA+ policies that allow a diverse workforce to thrive. Join us for an in-depth discussion of the challenges, pitfalls and opportunities of cultivating an LGBTQIA+ inclusive culture at your organisation.

Discussion points:

  • Where are we now and where are we going with regard to creating a diverse and inclusive industry?
  • Are we still going forward?
  • What are the challenges, pitfalls and opportunities with trying to cultivate a diverse workplace?
  • How to make your organisation internally and externally LGBTQIA+ inclusive.
  • Personal branding as an LGBTQIA+ individual and how to be a better ally to your colleagues and other stakeholders.
