Pride Network Lead project is co-funded by the European Commission Erasmus+ KA2 programme and aimed to create, promote and test a new standard for the professional role of the “Pride Network Lead”, which will support the inclusion of LGBTQ+ people in the work environment and which will build the openness for Diversity & Inclusion within the organisations. Thus, the project is focused on the area of providing solutions and tools enabling the development of leaders of employee networks supporting the inclusion of LGBTQ + people (Pride Networks). Indeed, Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are an important part of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) work in the organization, but there are some standards in this field that are still needed. This challenge is pan European and can be solved by the different experiences of partner countries, and this project aims to strengthen ERGs using the appropriate methods and tools.

It will last 24 months 01/10/2022 – 30/09/2024

Objective

The main objective of the project is to develop and establish the professional role of the “Pride Network Lead”. Indeed, it can foster the inclusion of LGBTQ+ people in the workplace and strengthen the policies of diversity & inclusion within the organizations.
