Partner Event: LGBT+ in the Financial Services Industry Summit

Grange City Hotel, 8-14 Cooper's Row, London EC3N 2BQ

30th October 2017 - 8am

Ruth Hunt, CEO, Stonewall and Inga Beale, CEO, Lloyd’s of London will lead a stellar panel at this highly topical conference.  Offering financial institutions a diverse and well-informed dialogue with industry leaders and government officials this event will enable delegates to understand how to overcome the main challenges LGBT+ executives are facing in the workplace, and learn how FS businesses can move from promoting LGBT+ friendly strategies to creating a culture of true inclusion.

Building on City & Financial’s other conferences about diversity and inclusion in the FS industry, such as the recent Women in Finance Summit, this conference will focus on the LGBT+ community and the vital role that it plays in the success of financial services in the UK. The importance of LGBT+ issues has been much in the media recently, most recently with the Government’s proposed LGBT+ legislation, promised for this autumn.
