InsideNGO 2017 Annual Conference: Framing the Future of NGO Excellence

Th03.13 - Supporting a Diverse Global Workforce: LGBT and Travel Risk

Jul 20, 2017 1:15pm ‐ Jul 20, 2017 2:15pm


For minority and LGBT staff and volunteers, there can be unique risks when it comes to traveling regionally and internationally. In more than half of the world, members of the LGBT community face harsh discrimination and may not be protected by workplace law. The rise of nationalism and the escalation of faith-based discrimination make having a diverse workforce a greater risk to both the individual and the organization. Led by a panel and using case studies, this session will help you to compare your organization's policies and protocols where diversity and risk intersect, and learn how to engage your staff in discussions of travel risk profiles.
