Promoting Diversity & Inclusion in the workplace not only complies with the law but earns organisations a reputation as being open, creative and forward thinking. Working in an ‘LGBT friendly’ environment fosters openness and confidence, improved work productivity and as well as loyalty in the organisation.
A recent article in The Guardian stated:
“Still, 34% of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the UK choose not to disclose their sexuality at work. They hide their private lives from colleagues and clients for fear of homophobia, exclusion or in case they are overlooked for valuable promotions.”
So what’s it like in Jersey & Guernsey?
Edith Coleman will share the findings of the first ever survey to gather quantitative data on the experiences of LGBT people in employment in the Jersey and Guernsey.
We are delighted to have Paul Gillen, Chair of CIPD , Northern Ireland and Head of the Employment Law team for Pinsent Masons with us. Pinsent Masons are ranked as the top law firm in Stonewalls Top 100 Employers 2016 index and Paul will talk about best practice and some recent examples of cases which show what happens when it goes wrong!
These interactive seminars will include Q & A session and a light breakfast/lunch will be provided.
