Host Julia Streets is joined by Arlene McDermott, co-chair of the London Stock Exchange Group Proud network and Ethan Salathiel, coach, consultant, programme leader and entrepreneur. In this episode and timed to continue the support for Transgender Awareness Week Julia, Arlene and Ethan discuss what firms can do to make room for all LGBTQ+ employees, with a particular focus on individuals wanting to transition. They discuss the importance of senior and middle management leadership, the importance of intersectionality and how organisations can remove the barriers between various networks and communities . Together they recognise that for some it may still be concerning to be out and the importance of corporate culture in attracting, supporting and therefore retaining talent. As we head into tough economic times, they examine why maintaining LGBTQ+ issues as a high priority on the D&I and corporate agendas really matters right now.
