What does corporate allyship look like in 2023? Our latest Pride in Tech features insights from the fabulous Emma Cusdin (she/her) and Rachel Reese (she/her) who lead the incredible Global Butterflies. Established in 2015, Global Butterflies was created to help businesses become more trans and non-binary inclusive. Since then, Emma and Rachel have worked with hundreds of businesses across the globe – from London, Toronto, New York and even Hong Kong.
In this episode, Emma and Rachel sit down with Alfie Rice (he/him) to discuss the evolution of corporate allyship, as well as their work at Global Butterflies. We discuss the concept behind Corporate Pride, and how organisations are acknowledging this movement. We also look into some of the excellent work that is taking place to support Transgender folks in 2023.
Are you interested in continuing the conversation further? Come and join us at our upcoming event ‘The 'T' in LGBTQIA+: The power of intersectional advocacy,’ on 20th September featuring both Emma and Rachel. With the help of our expert panellists, we’ll be discussing:
Corporate Advocacy vs. personal advocacy in the Trans and Non-Binary community
Bridging generational gaps and unpacking discussions
What it takes to feel a sense of belonging
Intersecting barriers to progress
The impact of language
P.S. we hope you’re hungry! We will be joining forces with Nando’s for this event and will be live and direct from their secret kitchen in Putney. Register your spot now:https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/the-t-in-lgbtqia-the-power-of-intersectional-advocacy-tickets-675109068397?aff=oddtdtcreator
