Using the Global UN LGBTI Standards of Conduct for Business to Implement LGBT+ Inclusion Globally

90-minute Workshops

Day 2

Session Code: S3-F
When: April 17, 2019
Location/Room: M 100 AB
Level: Intermediate
Track: Global Diversity
Presenter: Miguel Castro, SAP


On September 26, 2017, the UN announced SAP as one of the first supporters of the Global UN LGBTI Standards of Conduct for Business. SAP considers that supporting these standards is important for two main reasons: On one hand, it shows alignment with the actions suggested by the UN that companies can take to protect the rights of LGBT individuals. On the other, it acknowledges that there is always more that can be done in this space—these standards provide guidance for the next set of projects.

Join this session to learn how SAP protects, develops and empowers their LGBT+ colleagues worldwide, how it acts in the public sphere in places like Kenya, the Philippines, the Czech Republic, and Colombia, and how the SAP software technology helps ensure bias-free work environments.

  1. Learn what to include in your policies and programs considering your global LGBT+ workforce to protect leadership development
  2. Understand how technology ensures Business Beyond Bias diversity in the workforce and supply chain
