Bitesize Learning: An LGBT+ business case review

Fri, March 29, 2019

Friday 29th March, 8.30am - 9.30am. Warnford Court, 29 Throgmorton Street, London, EC2N 2AT.


The business case for diversity and inclusion in general has long been proved. To fully embed an LGBT+ inclusion strategy it is important to clearly set out the business case in numbers and potential return on investment. There are huge advantages for numerous areas but it is important to consider each pillar in turn to be able to convince those around your effectively.

Over the last few years there has been a growing number of studies looking at this space and this session will draw on key themes to inform you. We will draw on global research and also consider learning from other sectors. How do you convince the board and business leaders to invest in LGBT+ inclusion? How can you measure the impact of LGBT+ inclusion and track progress? How can you demonstrate ROI to existing employees, aspiring talent, clients and investors?

We will also provide you with a number of takeaways for you to take back to your firms. The session will be documented in a bitesize white paper and distributed to participants to produce a framework for discussion.
