The Vietnam Corporate Pride Network has been launched in Ho Chi Minh City to highlight the importance of advancing lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) rights and workplace inclusion practices in Vietnam.
|The Vietnam Corporate Pride Network officially kicked off in Vietnam |
The Vietnam Corporate Pride Network (VCPN) is a joint collaborative effort of KPMG Vietnam and the ICS Center, with active support from the Consulates-General of Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States, and the Australia-Vietnam Young Leadership Dialogue (AVYLD).
The network will bring together corporate organisations to promote inclusive workplace cultures and initiatives where LGBTI people can be themselves and are valued in their employment.
The VCPN will be driven by ICS, a local Vietnamese NGO who runs local and national inclusion programmes for the LGBTI community. KPMG Vietnam, the Consulates-General of Australia, the UK, and the US, and AVYLD will provide ongoing strategic direction.
It is expected that the VCPN will hold regular bi-monthly meetings to share corporate inclusivity best practice, provide updates on key strategic initiatives, and foster continued networking. The network also plans to organise further activities to showcase local leaders progressing the inclusion agenda.
The VCPN welcomes all types of corporate organisations with a commitment to inclusion to join the network.
The launch of the Vietnam Corporate Pride Network was held on January 14, 2021
