An Open Discussion on LGBTQ+ Parenting

On Wednesday 23 March this week, the LGBTQ+ business platform myGwork will host a discussion on LGBTQ+ parenting. 

Many LGBTQ+ people seek to become parents through a variety of different routes available to them. Whether adopting, looking for a surrogate, or pursuing IVF, LGBTQ+ couples are now able to plan and build their families in a number of countries around the world. This event will explore some of these options. It will also cover topics such as how stereotyping can impact LGBTQ+ parents (or parents-to-be); creating a family using IVF and how it can differ for each couple; how growing up experiences may affect LGBTQ+ parenting; balancing work-life responsibilities with childcare; as well as intersections between LGBTQ+ network with parenting ERGs; and more.

The panel will feature LGBTQ+ parents who talk about their experiences of having children, and will answer questions that other attendees may have about starting their own family. It will also feature parents of LGBTQ+ people on how to better support LGBTQ+ people growing up, and better understand the challenges that they face. Sponsored by Finastra, panellists include Marks & Spencer's Mark Bradford, Sanofi’s Suncere Hernandez, Astra Zeneca’s Gill Hayes-Bell, Criteo’s Denise Yu, VF Corporation's Jan Van Mossevelde, St James’s Place's Nicola Tempest-Hall and LGBTQ+ Consultant Saski.
