LGBTQI+: Rights and Inclusion
01 LGBTQI+: Rights and Inclusion
The lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex (LGBTQI) community face specific difficulties when accessing even their basic rights. They still face social discrimination at work places and beyond, which can sometimes cost them access to homes, education and even engage publicly. This community will focus on developing inclusive hiring practices, as well as drive conversations and spread awareness to reduce social discrimination faced by the LGBTQI community.
Inclusivity for Specially Abled
02 Inclusivity for Specially Abled
It isn't simply enough for the differently-abled to get social acceptance. The need is for an enabling global environment that gives them an equal chance to rise to their potential in the workplace. The DLC Social Impact Community is committed to realising, promoting and protecting the rights of persons with disabilities at work.
More than 200 million people worldwide - disproportionately youth - are unemployed. Another 2 billion working age adults - mostly women - remain outside the workforce. The challenge is to provide decent jobs to all those eligible not just to secure income but to empower the poor, the disadvantaged, the marginalized, women and younger people.
