“WorkPride is a vital resource for LGBTQ+ communities and inclusive employers”

myGwork, the global business community for LGBTQ+ professionals, is bringing back its massively successful WorkPride for a second year.

WorkPride is a five-day series of events for LGBTQ+ professionals, inclusive employers and anyone who is committed to workplace equality. It’s the perfect opportunity to network, share best practices and learn new strategies to help create workspaces that are inclusive of all sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions. 

In June 2020, WorkPride attracted an impressive 18,000 attendees. For 2021, WorkPride is expanding its offering to 50 events across five days. Expect panels, training, digital-social events and more. For a second year, EY, the global professional services provider, is the Headline Sponsor.

With LGBTQ+ professionals and inclusion specialists from all around the world, WorkPride 2021 will offer invaluable insights into what businesses and professionals have learned over the past year, as well as looking ahead and discussing how they’re preparing to enter physical workplaces again.

The sessions will include fascinating conversations around inclusion, mental and emotional health, allyship in the workplace, upskilling and what it means to be an LGBTQ+ person in business in 2021.

Adrien Gaubert, CMO and co-founder of myGwork, says:

“The world has continued to change in ways we couldn’t have imagined, and our job at myGwork is to ensure LGBTQ+ professionals have the skills, resources and networks they need to keep working and keep effecting change. As LGBTQ+ professionals and inclusive employers navigate the reopening of the world, WorkPride will in many ways prepare us all to enter back into workplaces committed to inclusion and diversity.” 

Pierre Gaubert, CEO and co-founder of myGwork, says:

“WorkPride is a vital resource for LGBTQ+ communities and inclusive employers and we feel encouraged by last year’s attendance and the subsequent feedback. If LGBTQ+ professionals are disproportionately impacted by Covid-19, then our communities need more and more dedicated resources and support. WorkPride is a brilliant opportunity for inclusive employers to acknowledge the tremendous role LGBTQ+ professionals play in all industries and we look forward to another successful year.” 

EY’s Global Unity Leader Moriaki Kida, adds:

“EY’s LGBT+ community is a strong and vibrant part of our diverse global organisation, and a beacon for D&I teams overall. We are committed to fostering an environment where all are valued for their uniqueness and where everyone feels a sense of belonging at EY. This is why I’m delighted that EY Unity UK&I is once again sponsoring WorkPride to promote workplace equality and inclusion.”
