Open@Work started in 2016 as a joint initiative of Accenture, KliQ vzw and BNP Paribas Fortis aiming at connecting LGBT+ people and support networks across companies.
Open@Work was officially recognized by the creation of a non-profit organization on March 6, 2019.
The three main goals of this initiative are:
- Build a cross-company network, focusing on ‘Out in the workplace’.
- Join forces in creating an inclusive work environment for the LGBT+ community.
- Exchange good practices on LGBT+ and ally company networks.
We aim to organize these events, combining short updates on LGBT+ workplace trends provided by inspiring speakers followed by an informal networking opportunity. These events are open to our LGBT+ volunteers and Allies, as well as to any new member wishing to join the initiative.
