Diversity, equality and inclusion continues to feature highly on the agenda of many organisations. Numerous studies have shown that organisations which foster an inclusive and diverse workplace are more likely to benefit from increased productivity and staff retention.

At MacRoberts, we understand the first step to effective inclusion is understanding the issues faced by marginalised communities and learning about what we can all do to encourage inclusion.

We are therefore delighted to invite you to our conference on Maximising LGBTQ+ Inclusion in the Workplace. This conference aims to address a range of issues faced by the LGBTQ+ community in the workplace and provide an insight to what organisations can do to maximise LGBTQ+ inclusion.
