With our LGBTIQ+ Employer Excellence Program “We Stay PRIDE”, we support our partners in living diversity sustainably and authentically, developing the organization and its employees, and making successes visible both internally and externally. In this way, LGBTIQ+ diversity becomes an integral part of the corporate culture.
We Stay PRIDE is a digital program – partners and organizations can quickly and easily get in touch with us and employees worldwide can participate in We Stay PRIDE events.
We raise LGBTIQ+ diversity to a new level – with an analysis of the current situation and consulting by experts.
We train and sensitize employees for LGBTIQ+ diversity.
We network with LGBTIQ+ employees and create opportunities for empowerment and mutual learning.
Diversity put to the test – the PRIDE Champion Audit
With the help of our audit, we annually analyze the current state of our members’ LGBTIQ+ diversity management and point out potential growth areas in a personal feedback session. The best companies and organizations that achieve at least 60% of all possible points in the PRIDE Champion Audit are awarded the PRIDE Champion seal. All We Stay PRIDE Premium Partners also receive an annual benchmark report, which enables them to compare their performance with that of other participating companies.
LGBTIQ+ Diversity Training – 75 criteria for a LGBTIQ+ friendly workplace
In our four-part training “75 criteria for a LGBTIQ+ friendly workplace”, we provide an overview of successful LGBTIQ+ diversity management measures in organizations and companies which is based on the PRIDE Champion Audit.
Exclusively for our We Stay PRIDE partners, we organize a Focus Session once a quarter, in which we take an in-depth look at a HR-relevant LGBTIQ+ topic. Topics so far have included intersectionality, trans* at work, LGBTIQ+ on business trips, inclusive language, and many more.
Once a quarter we publish an info booklet on the topics of the Focus Session. This summarizes all the information from the presentations. All info booklets and event recordings can also be accessed online in the Diversity Collection.
A LGBTIQ+ diversity knowledge platform is available to our partners. There you can find links to current LGBTIQ+ studies, articles and videos. In addition, the recordings of all Focus Sessions are stored there.
#UNPINKED – The LGBTIQ+ Diversity Conference
Our global LGBTIQ+ diversity conference will be held locally in Berlin for the first time this year. The focus is on cross-sector knowledge transfer for the empowerment and inclusion of the queer community in the workplace. Participants are invited to meet other company representatives, exchange best practices and learn from each other.
We advise our partners individually on their LGBTIQ+ diversity management. Depending on the size of the partnership, a contingent of consulting hours is included. These hours can be used individually for internal measures, e.g. for the development of or advice on guidelines or surveys.
Training & Awareness
Training and awareness on LGBTIQ+ diversity is an essential component of a successful diversity management. Several of our trainings are included in the We Stay PRIDE partnerships. Some of the trainings can be freely selected from our portfolio. The training dates are agreed upon at the beginning of the membership. Trainings can also be conducted offline on site upon request, plus additional costs.
In addition, we offer open LGBTIQ+ Awareness & Allyship Trainings (in German and English) twice a year for all We Stay PRIDE partners. This way, all employees can profitably benefit from the trainings.
At the Community Exchange, LGBTIQ+ employees, network members, HR managers and diversity managers from our partners can exchange ideas in confidence. Each quarter, small groups discuss best practices as well as current issues, challenges and opportunities.
In our exclusive Cross-Company Mentoring Program, we bring LGBTIQ+ mentees together with successful queer individuals from other companies. Mentoring enables an intensive and trusting exchange to accompany professional and personal development. The cross-company mentoring is accompanied by sessions with the We Stay PRIDE team, where all participants can come together and share suggestions and questions.
