On Thursday 27 May, the BCCSA co-hosted a webinar discussing the LGBT community’s inclusion in the workplace. It was an eye-opener event and as a Business Chamber, we would like to support the work that the LGBT+ Management Forum is doing in South Africa.
We would like to invite our members to participate in the South African Workplace Equality Index (2021), the only LGBT-inclusion benchmark in Africa. The SAWEI is an exciting flagship project of the South African LGBT+ Management Forum NPC. The short self-assessment provides companies with a free report to measure themselves against best practice. They also showcase the most LGBT+ inclusive employers in South Africa.
In 2019, 27 major companies participated and, this year, they are aiming for 40. As more companies participate, the benchmark becomes more meaningful and the impact becomes so much greater. The go-live date was 17/05 and the online platform will remain open until 13/08. The results will be published towards the end of 2021.
Should you wish to participate to the survey, please send a mail to SAWEI@lgbtofrum.org.
