Join us in Malmö Town Hall Aug 17
We are happy to invite all members to our LGBTI+ Business conference in Malmö Town Hall during WorldPride in Copenhagen! The conference will be held August 17 between 1300-1700 and both as a live event and a digital event. The aim is to highlight the business angle of LGBT inclusion, and, not least, the entrepeneurship of our own community.
There is a significant return on investment for private corporations that implements a sustainable diversity strategy. In order to be successful this need to be a credible, long-term starchy in how these issues can best be implemented in the corporate business strategy, in all parts of the business processes from talent acquisition to workplace inclusion, innovation, sales and supply-chains. This can also be tracked up to the owner-level, by the stock-performance.
The current pandemic has caused severe stress to the business environment across the world. Some have had a very difficult time, and some have done well. Over time, certain areas will go back to pre-pandemic activities, and others will come out with entirely new models and strategies. What has become evident is the need for the diversity and inclusion models to be resilient under stress as well as sustainable in order to be useful, credible and deliver the intended outcome for the business at hand.
One group is sometimes overlooked. Those in our community that who runs and develops businesses on their own. We want to highlight the thriving entrepreneurship within our community and the economic development and innovation it brings. In the USA alone, the LGBTI business community is calculated to add 1.7 Trillion USD annually to the GDP (Witeck,2019), and there is no reason this should be any different in Scandinavia.The entrepreneurs in our own community is the focus of SGLCC and now it is your time to shine!
