After a hugely successful event last year, attracting over 20,000 delegates from around the world, the LGBTQ+ professional networking platform myGwork returns with an action-packed WorkPride 2022, this summer. This year’s five-day conference, boasting around 70 events, is scheduled to take place between 20-24th June, with sessions delivered in English, as well as Spanish.
Each year, WorkPride welcomes thousands of virtual attendees from around the globe to network, share best practices and learn strategies to help create workspaces that are inclusive of all sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions. Once again, myGwork’s events featuring workshops/panels alongside a digital career fair, will include expansive and nuanced conversations about LGBTQ+ inclusion, mental and emotional wellbeing, allyship and career progression/business opportunities in the workplace, with global expert advice from public and private companies/organisations in practically every sector.
This year’s WorkPride will feature speakers from around the world offering great advice on allyship (Monday 20 June), networks (Tuesday 21 June), careers (Wednesday 22 June), business (Thursday 23 June) and wellbeing (Friday 24 June); as well as tips on how to get ahead in sectors like tech, legal, finance and more. Additionally, myGwork’s virtual WorkPride conference includes diverse and ethnicity-specific panels to provide an opportunity to deep dive into different intersectional LGBTQ+ community needs and issues, covering disability, generational/age, race/culture (Latinx, South Asian, Black, etc), and more.
This platform is part of the Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacities of equality actors" of the Priority Solidarity Fund "Women for the future in the Mediterranean" funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and led by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, in the framework of the project “Developing Women's Empowerment” labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
