ACT Diversity and Inclusion Calendar: Engaging LGBTQ+ Allies

18:00 - 20:30 23 January 2018
Barclays Headquarters, Canary Wharf


LGBT networks for staff have become a crucial and well-established part of Diversity and Inclusion initiatives in the workplace. Equally important is the engagement of allies, those who do not identify as LGBT themselves but wish to support to spread acceptance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights in the workplace and beyond.

If you would like to know more about ally networks and what you can do yourself to help create and support an inclusive environment for the LGBT community, join us for the next event of the ACT Diversity and Inclusion Calendar on Tuesday, 23 January 2018.

Hear a keynote speech from Hannah Bernard (Head of Mortgages, Barclays), herself a passionate LGBT ally, and engage with our panel of treasury and finance professionals in a conversation on the importance of ally networks in the workplace.
