LGBT+ Speakers

LGBT+ speakers play an important role in the fight for workplace diversity and inclusion. Often booked to conduct private corporate workshops, their expert insight into sexuality teaches audiences the correct terms to use, phrases to avoid and why it is important to support the LGBTQ+ community.

For a workplace to thrive, every employee must feel safe and respected by their colleagues. However, with 46% of LGBT+ workers reporting that they are closeted at work, a lack of inclusion can cause division within a team. LGBT+ speakers provide valuable insight into the importance of cultivating an inclusive environment where lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender staff feel represented.

What sets these speakers apart is their authenticity, they are driven by their own experiences and a passion for making the world a better place.
