LGBT+ Leadership Summit
Vorsitz: Bitte anmelden / Veranstaltung findet in englischer Sprache statt
7. März 2020
09:00 - 16:00 Uhr
M1+2+3 / Level 3 / CityCube Berlin
by invitation only!
The political, economic and social situation of the LGBT+ community differs from country to country. Fully accepting and inclusive cultures exist alongside countries where being part of the LGBT+ community is reason enough for stigmatism, legal prosecution or even death penalty.
But business leaders as well as political key figures are more and more taking a stand for diversity and inclusion of LGBT+ community. How do they use their influence on a global scale? What lessons have they learnt and how can they advise us to become an active supporter for equality?
Leadership experts and practitioners will share insights, present and discuss best practices on stage and in break-out sessions.
Host: Dr. Stephan Gellrich, Leadership Expert, Munich, Germany
