    Julia Streets Recorded: Jul 3 2019 27 mins
    Against a backdrop of significant worldwide political and legislative changes, Erin Uritus, CEO of Out and Equal discusses the power of corporate advocacy and responsibility for protection of the LGBTQ+ community in the workplace. Erin talks about the commercial case for diversity and the benefits of campaigning for LGBTQ+ rights shared from her organisation’s work with global corporations. Through networking, training and examining areas of commonality, firms can make room for intersectionality, and by working with allies can create a safe space for staff to work through challenges relating to the workforce as a whole, and therefore embrace full inclusivity.
