The United Nations serves as one of the premier defenders of human rights around the world, through both research of abuses as well as guidance for businesses and governments to adopt better practices. One area in which this is true is around LGBTQ rights, for which several U.N. divisions have created focused initiatives to combat discrimination—including in the workplace.
Join Out & Equal on March 14th for our global webinar discussing the role of the United Nations in engaging the private sector in LGBTQ equality. Fabrice Houdart, Human Rights Officer at the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, will share progress on raising awareness on the office’s LGBTI Standards of Conduct for Business around the world. Edmund Settle from the United Nations Development Programme will then review the results of their multi-country study on employment discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and sex characteristics in China, the Philippines, and Thailand. Presenters will then answer audience questions on their programs, as well as general questions about the role of the entire United Nations on defending LGBTQ rights.
If you or someone at your company is engaged in global diversity and inclusion work and wants to know challenges and best practices that exist around the world, this webinar is for you!
