Lesbians* in the workplace in Europe: the contribution we are when we’re out at work

Lesbian* Main Room, 3rd Floor
Workshop description:

There are millions of lesbian, bisexual and transgender women across Europe. Most of them take active part in the labour market as employees, managers, freelancers or business owners. The purchasing power of lesbians* is immense yet the influence we can have on the workplace and society may not always be easily recognizable.

Does being OUT at work and in teams contribute to cohesion? What is the impact of being OUT on career opportunities? How women who are OUT experience work – do they have a better experience? What is the impact of being OUT on results? How does lesbian* visibility in the workplace advance inclusion and acceptance of lesbians in society? What lesbian* business networks are active in Europe and what do they do?
