Event description

CIWEM and CIEEM are joining forces this Pride Month to give you the advice and tips to make our industry more inclusive to LGBTQIA+ people.

As membership organisations, we are all about giving everyone a sense of belonging. Colleagues shouldn’t have to hide part of themselves because of fear of discrimination or rejection at work. This kind of pressure weighs on their mental health and on their performance, they can’t focus fully on their job and give their teams the best.

This webinar is an opportunity to demystify LGBTQIA+ identities and to discover which practical changes we can make to foster a welcoming work environment.

Part of the CIWEM Diversity and Inclusion series.

Register for 28 June 2024
