We’ll help you establish workplace equality for your LGBT+ employees

We view diversity as a fundamental principle that allows all people – regardless of individual differences – to fully develop their personal potential. The voluntary application of diversity – as per the European Charter on Diversity – means accepting, supporting, and further developing individuals’ talent.

As part of the Pride Business Forum, we have joined forces to create an initiative to support both employers in implementing LGBT+ diversity principles and employees in efforts to ensure their employers are delivering a fair approach to all: regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity. But because we want hundreds of thousands of LGBT+ people, their families and children in the Czech Republic to have a good life not only at work, but also beyond it, we decided to expand our activities and in 2023 we established the Pride Business Forum Fund.

We added a new pillar, Empowerment, to our structure, which includes the pillars Inspiration and knowledge sharing and Learning. It is through the Empowerment pillar that we will support the emancipation and empowerment of LGBT+ people, especially in regions outside of Prague, through our foundation and other activities.

I connect companies and organizations in a collective effort to eliminate inequality where the state has not yet found the courage to do so, and to initiate change and equality throughout society by positive example.

Tereza Kadlecová

Executive Director 

I observe what is happening in the society, absorb the atmosphere of individual companies and seize opportunities for more in-depth discussions. The insights, perspectives, experiences, and emotions of both queer and cis hetero individuals serve me as a great inspiration when thinking about the possibilities of how to cultivate an environment that fosters authenticity among all employees.

Czeslaw Walek

Chairman & Knowledge and Sharing Manager

The matter of equality and inclusivity in the workplace has been close to my heart since 2010, when our team alongside with key business partners laid the foundations of Pride Business Forum. Together with the entire team, I shape the vision of this organisation and set our strategy. This has led to the evolution of Pride Business Forum, which now stands as an independent entity with over 70 members. Its impactful role is the driving force of change towards a respectful society that fully uses its potential.
