Join us as we celebrate Pride month

Webinar attendee.

Join us for an evening of discussion where we will be celebrating Pride month and how we can strengthen allyship in an ever-changing business landscape. The discussion will cover 2 themes. The first will be ‘Place’, looking at the history of the LGBTQIA+ community and ‘Time’ where our panellists will delve into how we can develop our own qualities to be stronger and more inclusive leaders of tomorrow.

This event will provide a learning opportunity for those who want to strengthen allyship and inclusivity in their organisation and the wider community.

Theme 1: Place – honouring history

Step back in time to explore the history of Pride Month, commemorating the Stonewall anniversary and discover the significant places and moments that have shaped the LGBTQIA+ community.

Theme 2: Time – strengthening allyship to stand the test of time

Learn how to become stronger, more sustainable, and resilient allies and find out what socio-political and cultural contexts affect the LGBTQIA+ community.

This is event is a great chance to hear from an expertly designed panel hosted by one of our Global Executive MBA students.

Cambridge Judge Business School is in the business of transformation – of individuals, of organisations and society.
