Since 2018, we have presented our LGBT*IQ Awards to particularly engaged and influential ERGs (Employee Resource Groups) in four categories. With these awards, we continue to show appreciation and respect – for people who give voice, face, and weight to LGBT*IQ concerns in the workplace.
In 2021, we presented the award in the “Sustainability” category for the first time. The award goes to an ERG that demonstrates sustainable commitment to LGBT*IQ equality in the workplace and has anchored this commitment in its own corporate structure through appropriate structures and policies.
The commitment goes from positioning the topic among employees and in society to implementing LGBT*IQ as an integral part of the diversity strategy and driving social change around LGBT*IQ.
Are there active, long-term sponsorships or pro bono support of LGBT*IQ associations, NGOs, institutions? Is there systematic recognition of ERG work, e.g. as working time or in development goals?
No matter how big or small your company and ERG is: For your ERG, sustainable commitment to LGBT*IQ equal opportunities is not just lip service? Apply for the Sustainability Award 2023 with your LGBT*IQ ERG.
Application period starts on 10. April 2023.
