WorkPride Panel: How to Market to the LGBTQ+ Community

Any community is made up of specific interests, habits and ways of working, thinking and doing things. Understanding the differences is the first step to create an inclusive environment where all ideas are welcome and everyone is safe to bring their best self to the table. 


Having a clear idea of the audience you’re targeting in your business is a vital point for success. This panel will help you understand the needs and interests of the LGBTQ+ community that might help you take your business to the next level.
