The 'T' in LGBTQIA+: The power of intersectional advocacy

Back to events
20 September 2023 18:30-22:00 LondonRegister for Event

​We welcome everyone with open wings, so we’re joining forces with Nando’s, Global Butterflies and London Bisexual Network to explore the power of intersectional advocacy in the workplace. And besides, you can't say no to a Nando's.

How can we make the professional world a kinder and fairer place for Trans and Non-Binary people? The working experience can’t be explained by looking through a single lens, nor can we cultivate an inclusive environment without authenticity.

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

Whether you’re a member of the community or you’re learning how to be a better ally inside and outside the workplace, our events are safe, supportive, friendly and fun spaces to share ideas, challenge perceptions and uncover opportunities. We can’t wait to see you there. RSVP to save your space today.

Our panel of speakers includes:

  • Ashleigh Phipps (she/her) - Host @ Pride in Tech

  • Asha Harkness (she/her) - Chair @ London Bisexual Network
