At Stonewall we know that people perform better when they can be themselves.
That’s why each year we bring together over 800 people at our Workplace conference in London. If you haven’t booked to attend yet or want to know more about what to expect from the day then here’s the top 5 reasons why you should be a part of our 2017 conference on 7 April.
1 Be inspired by keynote speakers
This year John Bercow, Speaker of the House of Commons will share how he worked as an effective senior ally to rapidly advance LGBT inclusion in his organisation. He will be joined by La-Chun Lindsay, the Managing Director of GE Aviation Wales, who will share her wealth of experience in LGBT leadership.
2 Attract, retain and develop the best staff
An organisation's greatest resource is its people and inclusive organisations know how to attract the best. Whether you’re looking to diversify your network group or recruit and retain the best talent, our breakout session streams on being a role model or ally and investing in your staff will give you a whole host of innovative new ideas.
3 Make your workplace trans inclusive
This year we have an entire breakout session stream focussed on trans inclusion. You’ll have chance to learn everything from the basics right through to empowering your staff to step up as allies to trans people. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet Stonewall’s trans advisory group in our dedicated networking zone and learn more about trans inclusion.
4 Build lasting connections
This is Europe’s largest conference on LGBT workplace inclusion. We know we must collaborate and share ideas to achieve inclusion for all, so we’ve listened to your feedback and expanded our networking zone. It will now be easier than ever to meet other professionals committed to equality at work. Join organisations such as Vodafone, JP Morgan, NHS England, the University of Cambridge, Macmillan and hundreds more.
5 Overcome the challenges in working internationally
Tackling LGBT equality internationally can seem complex and daunting. Three breakout sessions and a dedicated global networking zone will inspire you with best practice examples from organisations who have had successes around the world.
