Nordic LGBT Inclusion Workshop 2013

Q-Factor presents highlights from the Nordic LGBT Inclusion Workshop Outcomes report.

The Nordic LGBT Inclusion Workshop Outcomes report was the result of the Nordic LGBT Inclusion Workshop 2013.  The workshop used the design thinking technique to structure a productive discussion on the topic of Developing a Nordic Strategy for LGBT Workplace Inclusion.

The network issues a bi-annual newsletter in order to keep participants updated. The first issue of this newsletter may be found here.

Q-Factor has succeeded in bringing together key players in business and civil society to challenge our approaches to LGBT-inclusion.
— Søren Laursen, Spokesperson on Legal Matters, LGBT Denmark

The Nordic LGBT Inclusion Workshop 2013 was hosted by SAP Denmark A/S.
