“Having lesbian, gay and bisexual role models is very important. It shows others you can be who you are.”
Sarah Weir OBE
What is the Authentic Role Models Programme?
Stonewall, and hundreds of leading employers across the UK, understand that people perform better when they can be themselves and at Stonewall, we know exactly how important role models are to our sense of self. This one day programme, for lesbian, gay and bisexual staff at all levels in an organisation, is designed to help you think about what it means to be authentic in the workplace and how you can be a more effective role model.
To promote increased visibility of LGB role models, seen to take an active role as change agents in the workplace
The objectives of the programme are
Despite the confidence of some prominent lesbian, gay and bisexual business leaders and public servants in being open about their sexual orientation, lesbian, gay and bisexual people remain under-represented at every level in many organisations. Numerous employers are now focusing on the career development and ambitions of their lesbian, gay and bisexual staff. This one day programme provides a unique opportunity to work with other lesbian, gay and bisexual staff to explore these themes.
