WorkPride 2023: Bringing Your Authentic-self to Work – What Does that Really Mean in Practice?

Employees who are able to be themselves authentically in the workplace are able to work more effectively and fit into their workplaces more smoothly as they needn't worry about the obstacles that otherwise would have been in their way. But how do we enable people to live authentically at work, and what does that really look like for employees? Our panel will be sitting down to discuss the importance of authenticity, but also how it can be implemented in a way that ensures everyone is able to work to their full potential.

    I want to create environments within companies that are truly inclusive, giving people from different race, gender, age, disability, and sexual orientation the confidence to be who they want to be and enjoy the career and success they deserve. I have worked for large global organisations to smaller family-run businesses and never had to deal with homophobic issues, the one time I did I left the company as they didn't see it as an issue if you have to go through this at the workplace and don't feel supported then this is a great place to find companies that can except you however just because a company has a policy or an award does not mean they practice this day to day I am proud of who I am and want to ensure that for people who have no voice are heard and represented both professionally and personally. If you are looking for advice on companies who are inclusive, CV help, interview prep please feel free to reach out.
