Pride 2021: Championing Inclusivity in the Workplace
It's clear that when employees bring their authentic selves to the workplace, they become more productive and enjoy a deeper sense of job satisfaction. Yet a Harvard Business Review Study has found that 68% of LGBTQ+ employees still chose to not come out at work.
To learn how your business can help create a more inclusive workplace for employees, join us for our first Virtual Pride Showcase on 10 June 2021!
