This June, the Thomson Reuters Institute is proud to announce the fourth installment in an eight-part series of thought leadership webinars devoted to advancing international LGBTQ2+ access to justice.

More than ever, employers are empowering LGBTQ workers with supportive workplace policies and lifestyle benefits to influence an inclusive workplace for all. Companies encourage LGBTQ communal growth through employee resource groups (ERGs), support of external LGBTQ organizations, and recalibrated workplace policies once deemed unfriendly toward the queer community. Yet, despite such remarkable changes, many LGBTQ workers remain hesitant to openly identify as LGBTQ. Throughout this presentation, participants will collectively outline strategies to promote a safe and encouraging workplace where employees can feel free to be their authentic selves.
