This workshop will give us essential tips on setting up measuring tools to monitor the impact of LGBT+ workplace equality activities. 

Description

In today’s working environment, LGBT+ workplace equality is no longer an aim but an expectation. Like any other strategic pillar of the company, LGBT+ workplace equality must rely on continuous measurement and improvement. Monitoring the impact of measures and activities pursuing LGBT+ diversity and inclusion is necessary to implement and promote diversity within the workplace. By collecting data and analyzing the results, you can address the areas of your business that you feel could benefit from greater diversity while identifying how it has helped you in other areas. Managers need to get dedicated KPIs to monitor and measure tools to see if their actions have a tangible impact on the inclusion culture. 

The following workshop will give us essential tips on setting up measuring tools to monitor the impact of LGBT+ workplace equality activities. 

In the first part, Michal Pitoňák, a National Institute of Mental Health researcher, will discuss Standards and Recommendations for Assessing the Social Status of Discrimination and Violence Against Non-Heterosexual and Gender Diverse Persons, including recommendations on how to monitor areas of sexual and gender identity. 

In the second part, Petra Madarová from Accenture will present an example of the best practice for monitoring and evaluating of impact and effectiveness of LGBT+ workplace equality activities in their company. Accenture is repeatedly leading the section of impact monitoring in LGBT+ Friendly Employer of the Year.

The interactive discussion on implementing recommendations and examples of good practice into the reality of participating companies will follow.
