Are we out, OUT? - Havas Pride event 24th August 2017
In celebration of Manchester LGBTQ+ Pride, we ran a relaxed panel discussion followed by networking and drinks. We celebrated and interrogated the roles and lives of the LGBTQ+ workforce.
This year we revisited the topic in light of recent political changes and the surge in grass roots activism to raise new questions:
What are the new realities of being LGBTQ+?
What can organisations do to foster inclusion?
Is social media helping or hindering?
Is visibility enough?
What does Pride mean?
Thank you to the great panel:
