Open@Work started in 2016 as a joint initiative of Accenture, KliQ npo 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 (npo) on March 6, 2019.
KliQ npo has not been part of the network since the establishment of Open@Work npo.
The three main goals of this initiative are:
- Build a cross-company network, focusing on ‘Open and Out at Work’.
- 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.
