Corporate Round Table: The economic case for LGBT Inclusion

Corporate Round Table: The economic case for LGBT Inclusion

Corporate Round Table – The economic case for LGBT Inclusion

We welcome our partners to a Round Table discussion on the corporate value of LGBT inclusion in a safe and corona-free environment, at the British Ambassadors Residence.

Date: November 11
Time: 15:00-16:00

In Britain the LGBT market is estimated is more than 80 Billion Pounds annually. The Nordic countries alone constitute a potential 2.5 million consumers and more than EUR Bln 30 in net-value. LGBT inclusion is vital for corporations in order to access this market potential. In addition a strategic D&I program attracts better talents and improves the environment for innovation. Yet, many corporations still have some way to go in order to integrate these issues in their business model to the full potential. Our Roundtable aims to provide a constructive dialogue and sharing of best practice examples.

Note that this event is by special invitation only. If you are interested please send us an email.

Date: October 15
Time: 09:00-10:00 CET

In the US alone, the “pink dollar” purchase-power is estimated to more than USD 1 trillion annually. In Britain it is more than 80 billion Pounds. The German LGBT+ travel segment is calculated to 30 billion Euro. The Nordic countries alone constitute a potential 2.5 million consumers and more than 30 billion Euro in net-value.

LGBT+ inclusion is vital for corporations in order to access this market potential. Crucial for success is a strategic D&I program, which can lead corporations to attract better talents and improve the environment for innovation. Yet, many corporations still have some way to go to integrate these issues in their business model to the full potential.

Our roundtable aims to provide a constructive dialogue and sharing of best practice examples. We will also show potential financial aspects from various perspectives. The panelists will also share their views on the current pandemic and the resulting economic fallout, and the implications this might have for D&I programs.

Every corporation, as well as the country as a whole, can benefit from the potential of LGBT inclusion. This roundtable will provide an overview and a platform for dialogue on new ideas how to make that possible.

After an intense time

After an intense time

The summer has been an intense time

The summer has been an intense time for SGLCC and we look forward to the autumn with a hope of a relative return to normality.

The spring was of course very affected by the pandemic, and the tremendous challenges to the world as a whole, and most of our events needed to be postponed.

It is our ambition to make up for the lost time in the months ahead.

Cooperate with our European friends

We were very happy to be able to cooperate with our European friends to have the full-day on-line conference in June, gathering audiences from across Europe and beyond.

A further development is that our European cooperation is strengthening with our fellow chambers in EGLCC and now we have a joint website

This focus on the joint website is on LGBT-owned businesses and it opens up a new possibility for LGBT owned businesses to connect with each other, as well as the potential to increase their potential to bid on tenders from multinational corporations. More information about the registration can be found here.

Events during the autumn

We aim to have several events during the autumn, however some are still work in progress, partly due to travel-restrictions and number of people.

We are working hard to find good solutions for us to meet again, safely and in good spirit. Look out for news of upcoming events!
