About the Webinar

BritCham's Diversity & Inclusion Committee are delighted to bring you a digital networking event on 17th March 2021 focusing on LGBT+ inclusion in the Singaporean workplace. The main point of discussion will be regarding 'Pride networks' within organisations, as well as other initiatives supporting LGBT+ inclusion in the workplace.


OBJECTIVES OF THE WEBINAR


From this webinar, we hope to initiate a more visible and accessible discussion between companies to share knowledge and provide guidance to other organisations on how to build an inclusive workplace for people of diverse sexual orientation and gender identity.


BACKGROUND INFORMATION


It is believed that there are likely to be numerous internal Pride networks within companies operating in Singapore, however at present it appears that these networks are working in isolation or in small clusters. This means that outside organisations do not have much visibility or opportunity to join.


Every network will have different experiences, and stories of their own successes along with lessons learnt. The intention of this event would be to create a platform for representatives of those networks to share their experiences, their journey and their best practices, no matter where they are in the evolutionary process.


In addition, we would like to hear personal anecdotes from individuals of how pride networks and other initiatives have had a positive impact on their workplace environment.


WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT


We will be hosting a panel discussion, with a lineup of speakers consisting of people who have had experience in establishing and developing Pride networks within the Singaporean workplace. 


Following this, attendees will be placed in Breakout rooms where topics of discussion will include:

  • What's really involved & basic requirements to keep a network visible and active
  • What are the basics to get right & the core deliverables for a network in its infancy
  • What challenges might we face & overcoming barriers on the journey to making your network a success


WHO SHOULD ATTEND


The webinar is intended to be open to all looking to foster LGBT+ inclusion within their organisation, regardless of where they currently are on their journey.


We welcome representation from organisations who have yet to establish networks within their companies and shall be tailoring much of the discussion to those who fall within this category, as we believe this is where the most positive impact can be made.


Thank you to our Diversity & Inclusion Partner, Barclays, for their long standing support with the Chamber's D&I activity.
