About Workplace Pride Foundation

Workplace Pride is a not for profit foundation dedicated to improving the lives of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transgenders and Intersex (LGBTI) people in workplaces all over the world. We strive for a world of inclusive workplaces where LGBTI people can truly be themselves, are valued and, through their contribution, help to lead the way for others.

TECH@WorkplacePride is a special program in which views, experiences and best practices are exchanged, and which increases the visibility of LGBTI people within the tech industry, with students, and society in general.

Decades ago, it seemed that LGBTI people simply did not choose for a career in technology. Now we know better: today we see many LGBTI professionals working and contributing to the success of technology-based organizations.

TECH has been a focus in various workshops during Workplace Pride conferences, and in the 2016 Canal Pride in Amsterdam the boat “Building Diversity” made LGBT-professionals in the building industry very visible.

About one in three Workplace Pride employers have a strong connection to technology, and we are sure that increased visibility for LGBTI employees in technical roles will be rewarded and will strengthen our employers.
