The LGBT Workplace Symposium in Chennai will bring together organizations representing employers, employees and civil society to address the specific challenges of being LGBT in the Indian workplace. It will develop a shared understanding of the local challenges, as well as strategies and tactics to address these challenges. Perhaps most importantly, it will establish a network of support that lasts well beyond the event and be an agent for on-going change and improvement.
Previous events in India have laid the groundwork for the symposium by raising awareness of LGBT issues. Here we will take this good work forward by creating practical and sustainable initiatives that have an immediate effect on employers, employees and the business-political establishment as a whole.
By the end of the symposium, participants and even external parties will have a new toolset of ideas and concepts but also concrete steps to continue the practical task of LGBT workplace emancipation in India. In particular, they will understand the impact of LGBT on the workplace in the Indian context and will be motivated to tell the story of LGBT workplace emancipation in their own workplaces and amongst their own networks. Parties less familiar with the topic of LGBT inclusion in the workplace will be given a glimpse of what the opportunities are and how topical and relevant this subject actually is. Most importantly, all participants will leave with the feeling that they personally can play a role in furthering the cause of LGBT visibility in the India workplace and ensuring its sustainability.
