Supporting LGBT+ in the Workplace Summit Ireland

Dublin, Venue TBC

The Supporting LGBT+ In The Workplace Summit comes to Ireland for the very first time.

Failing to support LGBT+ colleagues is not just immoral, it is hugely detrimental to the sustainability of your business.

Registration fee: £395 + VAT (€443.60 + VAT)

 

Aside from the moral argument to ensure employees can feel confident to be themselves at work, the business case is also compelling.

Organisation's who do not develop and strengthen a truly supportive and inclusive workplace face significantly lower levels of productivity from LGBT+ staff, under-utilisation of skills, a lack of engagement, a more constricted customer base, and potential legal costs of discrimination lawsuits. 

This event follows last year's sold-out UK launch, showing how organisations can change this situation to get the best out of their staff and expand their customer base. An extraordinary speaker line-up will deliver both practical and personal experience to share learning on the best ways to support your LGBT+ workers.
