WorkPride 2022’s five-day global virtual conference, starting Monday 20 June, features over 360 diverse voices from around the world at 71 events, offering expert advice on LGBTQ+ inclusion in the world of work. With an increasing number of companies wanting to ensure LGBTQ+ inclusion at work, myGwork’s upcoming WorkPride 2022 (20-24th June), is well-timed to help leaders and LGBTQ+ allies create more inclusive workplaces.
After a hugely successful event last year, attracting over 20,000 delegates from around the world, the LGBTQ+ professional networking platform myGwork returns with another action-packed WorkPride 2022, with sessions delivered in English, as well as Spanish. Once again, WorkPride will welcome thousands of virtual attendees worldwide to network, share best practices and learn strategies to help create workspaces that are inclusive of all sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions.
This year’s event boasts top international LGBTQ+ voices including former Olympian Michael Gunning, Trans Broadcaster India Willoughby, Tik Tok star Nosebleedfitz, political commentator Albie Amankona and first openly gay major league rugby player Devin Ibanez, alongside LGBTQ+ professionals and allies from Fortune 500 companies. The panels and workshops will provide the opportunity to deep dive into conversations about LGBTQ+ inclusion, mental and emotional wellbeing, allyship and career progression/business opportunities in the workplace for LGBTQ+ professionals and graduates, with global expert advice from public and private companies/organisations in practically every sector.
Global experts will offer timely advice, support and thought leadership on allyship (Monday 20 June), networks (Tuesday 21 June), careers (Wednesday 22 June), business (Thursday 23 June) and wellbeing (Friday 24 June); as well as tips on how to get ahead in sectors like tech, legal, finance and more. Additionally, the conference will include diverse and ethnicity-specific panels to provide an opportunity to delve into different intersectional LGBTQ+ community needs and issues, covering disability, generational/age, race/culture (Latinx, South Asian, Black, etc), and much more.
