We were invited to the Milton Keynes office of Grant Thornton yesterday to facilitate an informal session around diversity and inclusion in the workplace, as part of their activities to mark National Inclusion Week.
Q:alliance chair, Helen Pritchard, explained “We had a really good discussion and shared some ideas of what it can be like to be LGBTQ+ at work. The response was great, and it was excellent that a lot of the group shared that it had made them think more about the experience of other people.”
Trustee TJ Richards, who is also a member of RoundabOUT – a Milton Keynes based inter-company LGBTQ+ network, shared the positive impact that valuing our community has on work productivity, employee engagement and retention.
