Leading by example – creating a safe workplace for LGBT+ colleagues






12:00 – 12:30 Uhr CEST




This talk will focus on how important it is for leaders to be authentic about who they are so that, in turn, they are role models by default and not by design. Steve will share his own journey in recognising the role he plays in creating a workplace where LGBT+ colleagues can be safe, open, supported and ultimately be seen, providing examples of how this has worked.
