Our programme gives international organisations the tools they need to take a strategic and structured approach to LGBT equality initiatives globally.

Global Diversity Champions programme

Inclusive societies not only benefit individuals, but enable companies and economies to flourish.

In more than half the world, LGBT people may not be protected by workplace law. LGBT people face discrimination in every country, and same-sex relationships are criminalised in more than 70. 

The Global Diversity Champions programme gives you the tools you need to take a strategic and structured approach to LGBT equality initiatives globally and provides a network to keep you informed of legal changes and implications for your staff wherever they are in the world.

Why become a Global Diversity Champion?

Live your values, wherever you are in the world

To ensure your organisation is truly inclusive and unlock the potential of your staff, you need to embed your values in your workplaces around the world. This can help you create a consistent brand and drive customer engagement.

As a Global Diversity Champion, we’ll help you live your values by:

  • Providing tailored email and phone support – on UK and global work – through a dedicated account manager.
  • Supporting you to enter the UK Workplace Equality Index and Global Workplace Equality Index, which will highlight pockets of existing best practice and areas where you can improve.

Learn from our expertise

Our programme gives you the guidance and tools to create workplaces where LGBT staff can be themselves, wherever they are. Staff will be able to bring their whole selves to work, leading to higher levels of motivation, creativity, satisfaction and productivity.

As a Global Diversity Champion, you’ll learn from our expertise by:

  • Gaining exclusive access to our full library of resources. These give you step-by-step guidance on different areas of LGBT inclusion, from senior leadership to global mobility.
  • Attending our UK and global webinar series and recordings of previous webinars.
  • Having your policies reviewed for LGBT inclusivity by our in-house teams of experts.

Build your professional network

Joining one of the largest global communities of professionals dedicated to equality and diversity will put you at the cutting edge of LGBT inclusion in the workplace. You’ll have opportunities to share best practice and collaborate.

As a Global Diversity Champion, we’ll help you build your professional network through:

  • Introductions to our network of over 700 UK employer and 150 global employers to share ideas, approaches and best practice.
  • Facilitated connections with a network of over 100 local NGOs throughout the world.
  • Discounted rates to our CPD-accredited workplace conferences, where you can connect with hundreds of colleagues across different sectors.

Attract and retain the best talent 

A diverse workforce creates diversity of thought, action and innovation. But in a competitive global market, your workplace and culture needs to stand out to jobseekers.

As a Global Diversity Champion, we’ll help you attract and retain the best talent by:

  • Giving you the Global Diversity Champion logo to use on promotion materials.
  • Listing you on our Proud Employers careers site.
  • Advertising five job vacancies for free in your first year of membership on Proud Employers, with the opportunity to purchase more or become a Proud Employers principal partner.
