GSN is thrilled to announce we are media partners for Out & Equal’s first global summit.

Taking place in London on 5 and 6 July 2012, international businesses will consider ways to increase workplace equality for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) employees.

Influential speakers at the global summit will include tennis champion Martina Navratilova, former professional basketball player John Amaechi, and co-founder and chair of Stonewall Michael Cashman MEP.

GayStarNews.com has only been live for six months and with increasing unique and returning visitors each mouth we’re proud to be representing the Out & Equal Workplace Advocates. By the end of May 2012, GSN is predicted to have over one million page impressions; so to be able to combine this to raise awareness and support business equality is really important to us.

The GSN team is headed up by experienced gay journalists and editors Tris Reid-Smith and Scott Nunn.

Tris, the editor, said: ‘In the modern world, employers have huge power to make the lives of their lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender staff better. And global corporations in particular can use these business-beneficial opportunities to make a positive difference that reaches far further – to their staff’s partners, families, friends and society as a whole.

‘That’s why we are so pleased to be supporting Out & Equal’s good work and why we are committed to helping our clients make the most of the exciting possibilities they have in this area.’

Other corporate sponsors include Deutsche Bank, Accenture, Hewlett-Packard, Citi, Eli Lilly, Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, British Airways and The Advocate.

As well as key speeches, the event will include workshops, a Gala Dinner, and multiple opportunities for learning and networking. More information about uscan be found on our website as well as global LGBT news updates 24/7.

Thank you for your continued support and interest in all things GSN and the positive change we are making in the industry.
