WorkPride panel (in Spanish): Salir del armario en el trabajo. Networks LGTBI+

La diversidad por orientación sexual y por género está considerada una de las “diversidades invisibles”. Al igual que la diversidad racial es tangible y se puede percibir en un primer impacto visual, este tipo de diversidad puede existir y no ser percibida. Incluso en empresas e instituciones donde los porcentajes de personas LGTBI+ fuera del armario destacan por encima de la media. 

El primer paso, es trabajar internamente la diversidad y la inclusión. De esta forma es fácil que bajen estos porcentajes de personas LGTBI+ dentro del armario. Según el estudio de mpátika “La Diversidad LGBT en el contexto laboral en España”, las empresas con iniciativas de sensibilización en este campo consiguen reducir prácticamente a la mitad el número de personas en el armario. 

Poniendo un símil con el racismo. Que una persona oculte su orientación sexual o género es como si una persona de raza negra tuviera que maquillarse de blanco cada mañana para no sufrir el racismo. 

¿Cuál es la foto actual de las empresas con respecto a diversidad e inclusión LGTBI+? ¿Qué iniciativas pueden generar para conseguir un ambiente más inclusivo?

A estas preguntas nos darán respuesta los panelistas. Con una introducción realizada por el profesor de Antropología Social de la UCM, José Ignacio Pichardo, investigador principal del "Proyecto ADIM: Avanzando en la gestión de la diversidad LGBT en el sector público y privado" desarrollado por la Dirección General de Igualdad de Trato y Diversidad del Ministerio de la Presidencia, Relaciones con las Cortes e Igualdad de España, conjuntamente con la Comissão para a Cidadania e a Igualdade de Género de Portugal y la Universidad Complutense de Madrid.

El proyecto está financiado por la Unión Europea y en él participaron 16 empresas y 8 universidades públicas de España y Portugal que buscan mejorar el respeto y la inclusión en ámbitos laborales de lesbianas, gays, bisexuales, trans y otras personas pertenecientes a las llamadas minorías sexuales -como intersexuales, asexuales o personas de géneros no binarios- incluidos bajo las siglas LGBT+.

Diego Tomasino, coordinador de Pride Connection Panamá nos hablará de su libro Come Out!: Las empresas también tienen que salir del armario y daremos paso al panel con representantes de los networks LGTBI+.
