Employers often seek ways to showcase their dedication to community organizations through community service days, fundraising, and long-term partnership. Despite the best of intentions, these efforts can sometimes fall short of meaningful engagement with LGBTQ2+ communities. This panel discussion, presented by Pride at Work Canada, will bring together business and community leaders to share insights into how employers can make their relationships with community organizations meaningful for both parties.
The discussion will be preceded by a breakfast networking reception sponsored by Scotiabank.
Building on the premise that successful businesses will be those that will expand activities through market diversification, adapt to new technologies and better attract and develop talent, the CGLCC’s LGBT+ Global Business Summit & Supplier Diversity Forum will look at the opportunities and competitive advantage of being an LGBT+ Entrepreneur.
This two-day event intends to help LGBT+ business owners, corporate leaders, professionals and young entrepreneurs make some sense of what the current economic environment may mean for their company and identify how they can successfully remain competitive and grow their business while remaining authentic.
