Diversity Conference: Address ing LGBTI in the workplace

Considering that 52% of LGBTI* people in Luxembourg do not feel comfortable disclosing their sexual orientation at work (EU LGBT Survey 2012 -FRA),  thus impeding them of sharing their personal life with their work colleagues, which can cause distress, addressing LGBTI in the workplace appears to be a urgent matter.

Are you considering addressing the topic but do not know how? Are you wondering why LGBTI should be addressed in the workplace? And what could be the role of a LGBTI network?

Then do not miss the Diversity Conference on LGBTI organized by the Diversity Charter Lëtzebuerg and BGL BNP Paribas**

* Lesbian, Gay, Bisexuel, Transgender, Intersex
** BGL BNP Paribas is part of BNP Paribas Group, which ranked second in the Workplace Pride Global Benchmark 2015, the ranking of the most gay-friendly companies.
