A conference celebrating how Brighton & Hove as a city engages with its lesbian, gay, bisexual & transgender (LGBT) community will be held at the Brighton Centre on Friday 25 March.
Brighton & Hove City Council, which is hosting the event, has for a long time been recognised by campaigning group Stonewall as one of the top employers in the country for promoting equalities issues.
The event is a valuable opportunity for local and national employers to find out more about how to attract and retain valued staff by creating an organisational culture that celebrates employee diversity.
It’s also a chance for local people and organisations to network with other people and services that are committed to reducing inequality and increasing positive engagement.
A combination of workshops, keynote speakers and a ‘market place’ for exchanging ideas means everyone involved in the conference will have a chance to share their ideas and influence future policies.
The council’s cabinet member for community affairs and inclusion, Councillor Dee Simson, said, “This city and this council have a lot to be proud of in terms of promoting equalities. But there’s always more that can be done – particularly in terms of making people feel safer and more valued as they go about their everyday lives.”
The 250 delegate spaces are being offered on a first-come-first-served basis. For further details or to book your place, please:
