The Alliance Network

The expansion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights and awareness has had profound impacts worldwide. As norms shift in society and the court of law, organisations are reassessing how they address LGBT-rights issues. According to Mercer’s LGBT Benefits around the World Survey while many global organisations have adopted broader diversity and inclusion policies, just over half have tailored these policies to specifically accommodate LGBT employees.

Throughout 2017, Mercer is running sessions to unbundle sexuality and gender identity, helping us to better understand what makes us different and what we have in common.

This session will focus on a discussion of LGBT issues from the perspective of Lesbians, including a panel discussion with speakers from Mercer, PWC, EY and Barclay Card, followed by an open Q&A session and networking.

This event incorporates the Mercer WIRELESS network, which has a focus on leaders in the Reward, HR, Pensions and Compensation & Benefits profession.

In addition we have linked in with Creating Inclusive Cultures, a collaboration of companies and employers who are committed to realising and taking advantage of the benefits of diversity and inclusion, with a focus outside of London, to truly position cities such as Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester as thriving business powerhouses, and the The Alliance Network, a collaboration of LGBT Employer networks across the Midlands.

If you would like to attend please confirm your attendance to Christie Arnold ( or telephone 0121 644 3618).
