Why You Should Attend

The Cork LGBT+ Pride Festival will again host its ‘Work With Pride’ Diversity and Inclusion conference and will feature a stellar and diverse line up of speakers who will provoke and stimulate discussion to heighten the profile of professional role models. In addition to identifying how we can augment and amplify the voices of people from diverse backgrounds, whose unique experiences and challenges may not usually have a prominent role in shaping the dialogue around sexual orientation and gender identity and expression in the workplace.

Superb Agenda

We will cover an exciting and broad range of topics, share strategies and best practices that help create workplaces which are inclusive of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions.

1

Great Speakers

Our speakers will explore and highlight innovative approaches that can be replicated and amplified throughout the workplace and beyond, and will equip and inspire attendees to become agents of change in their own organisations.

2

Network
