LGBTQ+ Discussions that Matter: Insights from the Diversity Day Event

Opening speech at the Diversity Conference

Last week, Menity had the opportunity to participate in a thoughtful Diversity Day event organized by the Business Leaders Forum. As a signatory of the Diversity Charter, we engaged in an interesting program dedicated to LGBTQ+ people 🏳️‍🌈 in the workplace. The event commenced with opening remarks from the President of the Slovak Republic.

We delved into a wide range of topics, including the crucial role of Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) in initiating discussions on LGBTI+ issues, managing transitions in the workplace, the importance of using respectful language and ensuring equal benefits for all employees.

Roundtable discussion about Pink washing

A discussion table on pinkwashing opened up an important dialogue on the importance of genuine commitment over superficial engagement, while strategies for educating employees about LGBTQ+ related issues emphasized the need for a more inclusive work environment.

Attending this event not only deepened our understanding of LGBTI+ issues but also equipped us with the knowledge and tools to help our clients foster more inclusive environments. This will also allow us to better support diverse candidates in their career journeys, building leadership teams that reflect the diversity of our society.

Join us as we work to build workplaces that respect and value diversity and inclusion. 🤝
