LGBT Business Forum 2012: From Global to Local
We would like to open this quite new topic for the Slovak business environment, inviting representatives of multinational and local companies, market opinion makers, human resources specialists, diversity program managers as well as government representants to engage in discussion, share experience and gain knowledge.
The Roundtable will address topics including:
- What can employers do to create an environment that enables LGBT talent to reach their full potential?
- Bridging a company’s global Diversity & Inclusion strategy, and the application and inclusion of LGBT diversity in local context.
- Bringing global and multicultural experience to Slovak environment and supporting a stronger and more empowered LGBT community.
