The Power of LGBT+ Networks
Inclusive Companies are proud to present our latest event The Power of LGBT+ Networks in partnership with TalkTalk.
Networking is such a powerful marketing tool to accelerate and maintain success for any individual or organisation. It’s key to making connections and provides the most productive, most proficient and most enduring tactic to building mutually beneficial relationships.
There are thousands of employee, inter-sector, professional and social network groups all over the UK doing great things. But what it is that makes LGBT+ Networks so important? Inclusive Companies recently published findings from this year’s Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers Survey which revealed that 80.43% of employers had a dedicated LGBT Employee Network, remaining the most popular type of network amongst participants since 2017.
As we look to continue the momentum following LGBT History Month, ‘The Power of LGBT+ Networks’ will connect LGBT+ Networks and ally’s as well as explore innovative ways in which they have grown and formalized. This is also a fantastic opportunity to be part of a thriving new initiative, as we launch the Northern LGBT+ Network, a cross sector network for LGBT+ employee resource groups across the North.
Featuring guest speakers, a panel session and of course the chance to network over drinks and nibbles, this informal event will provide an unprecedented opportunity to connect with others across different industries and learn more about the power of Networks. Whether you identify as LGBT+, are a member of a network, an ally, or simply want to come along and learn more about joining or setting up a network, we encourage you to get involved!
