"It Gets Better" - communicating support to victims of prejudice

We are organising an awareness event in partnership with Stonewall and London Business School Leadership Institute to discuss how business and communities can support those who have been the targets of prejudice and discrimination in the workplace.

We hope to focus on the work of distinguished academics, together with insight from the public sector, private sector and charities. Everyone is welcome and everyone’s views are gratefully appreciated!

We hope to see you on 15 March at London Business School for what we hope is an excellent and thought-provoking debate!

Speakers

  • Prof Aneeta Rattan, London Business School
  • Prof Randall Peterson, Head of the Leadership Institute
We aim to add a civil servant, a business leader and a represenative from Stonewall to the list of speakers to make this debate truly inspiring!

About us

A team of Civil Servants and I have joined together to raise money for Stonewall during the early months of 2017. Stonewall works to promote acceptance without exception, making sure that those who identify as LGBT always have someone to turn to and somewhere to go.

The importance of promoting equality and acceptance more broadly is made clear by the story of one of the members of our team. When Jak was 15 he was thrown out of his home because of his sexuality, forced to spend months living on the streets. During this time Jak became severely depressed and even contemplated suicide. Stonewall were instrumental in not only helping to make sure Jak had a place to sleep and food to eat, they also supported him as he sought to join the Civil Service by providing him with the work experience and practical necessities that he needed in order to begin building a life for himself.

Without Stonewall's support it is certain that Jak would not be where he is today and this shows why Stonewall is a charity deserving of your support . Crucially one hopes that with enough support Stonewall can help change the world into a place where people such as Jak would not find themselves in such desperate situations.

Bisexuality and Mental Health

Posted on behalf of London Bisexual Network
The LBN is proud to announce our next event, an intimate discussion about the links between bisexuality and mental health.

At our launch event, several attendees expressed interest in fostering discussion about challenges that are encountered specifically by those who identify as bisexual. In response, we are pleased to invite you to a talk by Liam Timmins, held at Ropemaker Street. Liam is a Ph.D. student at Kings College London who studies non-traditional identities and attraction patterns, as well as issues surrounding mental health for individuals who identify as LGBT. He will be presenting his work as well as a general discussion of thescience around the issues it raises.

There will be a Q&A session following the talk, and we do hope you will join us for a drink afterward at a local venue (to be decided closer to the time).
