Disrupting Traditions & Driving Change – Advancing LGBTQIA+ Inclusion in the Digital Economy

CZ is doing something right – LGBTQIA+ citizens here reported some of the highest life satisfaction and felt discriminated against the least comparably to other EU countries (EU Agency for Fundamental Right, 2020). At the same time, the amendment to the Civil Code for equal marriage has been discussed in the Chamber of Deputies for over 5 years despite 73 % of CZ citizens being in favor (Globsec, 2023). Given the strong influence of both Western and Eastern countries on CZ, the political direction of LGBTQIA+ rights in the country is unclear. Expect interactive conversation and a call to action for both those in the community and allies – there’s a need for everyone to play a part!

A conversation not to be missed! There will also be a showcase of tried and tested mechanisms for disrupting traditions to attract and retain LGBTQIA+ talent.
