This event has been postponed due to ongoing concerns with COVID-19. New date to be announced in the future.

 

KNOWLEDGE QUARTER DIVERSITY ROUNDTABLE:

WHAT’S IN THE PLUS?

 

British Library

Thursday 09 April 2020, 08:30am – 10:00am

 

LGBTQ+ network groups can transform the experiences of LGBTQ+ people at work. They provide a space for employees to support each other, promote a better understanding of LGBTQ+ inclusion, scrutinise an organisation’s policies and processes and offer suggestions for how these can be improved. A good network of this kind can radically improve the working-day experiences for LGBTQ + employees, and create a better workplace culture for everyone within the organisation.

Many Knowledge Quarter partners have an LGBTQ+ network of some kind, and we’re delighted to invite colleagues who are involved in these networks to join us at the British Library to share their experiences and challenges. Together, we will be asking: How can organisations continue to support our LGBTQ+ staff? Where and by what means can they improve? In particular, we would like to explore, over an informal breakfast, the meaning that the tag LGBTQ+ has for different people.

This event is ideal for:

  • Staff representing LGBTQ+ and similar networks in their organisations
  • Staff looking to set up LGBTQ+ networks in their organisations
  • Senior management
  • Diversity and Inclusion professionals
  • Staff developing diversity and inclusion strategies

 

Diversity Roundtables are held bi-annually. Chatham House rules apply, so partners can openly discuss advances made since a previous roundtable as well as any challenges they face in this area.

 

Please email: jemima.barnes@bl.uk to secure your seat at the table. Let us know if you would like to host a future roundtable.
