Welcome to WorkPride 2020, a global online conference powered by Zoom.
We are delighted to present our first workplace conference together with our headline sponsor, EY. myGwork and EY have been partners since the launch of our network in 2015. We are really proud and honored by their continuous support not only to myGwork but also to the LGBTQ+ community worldwide.

Panel outline: Intersectionality is the theory that the overlap of various social identities, as race, gender, sexuality, and class, contributes to the specific type of systemic oppression and discrimination experienced by an individual.
