Increase your impact with authenticity
In cooperation with
Europe’s first academic programme for LGBT+ talents
in this blended 4-day full time programme designed for LGBT+ talents, you will explore and develop your personal leadership profile, practice design thinking and grow a powerful network to push your career to the next level.
Together with the global experience for LGBT+ Diversity of PROUT AT WORK, participants reflect on the unique challenges LGBT+ individuals experience in the workplace.
