The launch of the UN LGBTI Standards of Conduct for Business provided both a global human rights imperative and a concrete set of steps for companies to improve their practices with respect to lesbian, gay, bi, trans and intersex (LGBTI) populations. Discrimination against LGBTI people cannot be ended by governments alone, so the role of employers in advancing LGBTI rights is crucial. By adhering to these standards, businesses can foster diversity and promote a culture of respect and equality both in the workplace and the communities in which they operate.

As the largest UK-based LGBT equality charity, Stonewall has a well-established programme of work supporting businesses to transform their operations to improve the lived experience of LGBT people, both domestically in the UK and throughout their global locations and footprint. As a contributor to and launch partner of the UN Standards of Conduct for Business, we have produced a short toolkit designed to assist companies in their implementation of them. Come to this session to learn more about how your company can align its policies, procedures and broader practice with these leading international standards.
