LGBTQI+ in Accounting: Research, Education & Practice
Let’s talk about sex(uality)! Often not spoken about in accounting, diverse sexualities have represented a stigma accountants would often need to conceal within workplaces to avoid being excluded from potential career progression. Current progressive socio-political trends and cultural diversity movements have seen a change in pace as more and more accounting firms move to adopt and promote LGBTQI+ diversity and inclusion initiatives.
Join Alessandro Ghio, Nick McGuigan and Lisa Powell as they engage this topic, drawing on their research and collective field experience into sexuality and accounting. LGBTQI+ experience in accounting research, education and practice will be creatively explored and discussed with an opportunity for audience interaction and Q&A.
When: November 23, 2021. Time: 1 pm Brussels time
