Out & Equal’s Global Webinar Series includes bi-monthly hour-long webinars that feature guest speakers on LGBT equality in the workplace worldwide. Webinars are country specific. We will discuss the situation of LGBT equality in the workplace in a given country and the steps that companies working in these countries can take in order to improve the circumstances of LGBT people in the workplace. This is an interactive learning experience with a Q&A session after each presentation. Global webinars are designed to help global diversity and inclusion managers, executives and busy professionals as well as civil servants and non-profit employees. Global webinars are recorded so that they can be used in the future.
