On Monday 20 June myGwork's is returning for a five-day-long action-packed conference - WorkPride 2022. And, it's completely free!

More than 360 global experts will share their insights and advice on how to improve and achieve LGBTQ+ inclusion in the workplace and in every sector of business. 

Former Olympian Michael Gunning, trans broadcaster India Willoughby, and Tik Tok star Nosebleedfitz will be among the top international LGBTQ voices present between 20 and 24 June.

Political commentator Albie Amankona and the first openly gay major league rugby player, Devin Ibanez will also be around alongside LGBTQ professionals and their allies from Fortune 500 companies. 

With 71 events to choose from virtual attendees from across the globe will be able to share and learn best practices with sessions delivered in English and Spanish.

Panels and workshops will include conversations about LGBTQ+ inclusion, mental and emotional wellbeing, allyship, and career progression/business opportunities in the workplace for LGBTQ+ professionals and graduates.

As well as sessions on leadership, networks, careers, business, and wellbeing, there will also be diverse and ethnicity-specific panels to provide an opportunity to delve into different intersectional LGBTQ+ community needs and issues, covering disability, generational/age, race/culture (Latinx, South Asian, Black, etc), and much more.

Delegates attending more than five sessions will receive a free LGBTQ+ Inclusion Certificate of Attendance demonstrating their allyship credentials.

myGwork Co-founders Adrien (CMO) and Pierre Gaubert (CEO) say are delighted to be returning for 2022.

They add: "It’s a must-attend event for every leader and manager who wants to learn more about the tremendous role that LGBTQ+ professionals play across all industries, and how to be a better ally to promote much-needed inclusion, and ultimately retain this valuable and vibrant talent.

"It’s also an ideal event for LGBTQ+ graduates and professionals looking for their next role to find out more about opportunities at inclusive companies attending the event."

Five lucky attendees will also get the opportunity to win a cruise of a lifetime each day of the event, generously donated by Virgin Voyages, alongside other coveted prizes, such as tea for two at London’s Shard and other top-of-the-range goodies.
