Diversity Network "GayMat - Open Mindedness in the Workplace"

 

This Tuesday, July 10 was held our Diversity Network which allowed 26 participants to exchange their experiences around "Open mindedness in the workplace" within the context of GayMat, Luxembourg's Pride Week.

 

Pim Knaff, alderman of the City of Esch-sur-Alzette, presented the different initiatives of the City to become LGBTI-friendly: the city of Esch-sur-Alzette joined the Rainbow Cities Network, welcomes the GayMat every year and works with its teaching staff (organization of sensitization and training activities on the LGBTIQ + issue).

 

Enrica Pianaro sociologist at CIGALE spoke about the possibilities of actions to commit to the  LGBTI community in Luxembourg. She presented the work she was doing in CIGALE and called to participants to work on the communication, language and visual aspects, so that the diversity of the LGBTI community can be made visible and understanding and respect towards LGBTI people being promoted.

 

Frederic Trierweiler, vice president of the professional LGBT & Allies Network was able to present concrete solutions to be LGBTI friendly in businessThis network unites ten companies whose goal is to join efforts to allow other companies to learn and train about the subject.

 

We thank all the participants for their involvement in the success of this event, as well as the city of Esch-sur-Alzette for the provision of the premises.
