We are proud to invite the Rt Hon John Bercow MP, speaker of the House of Commons, for a talk covering his extraordinary range of views on politics today and efforts to reinvigorate Parliament, as well as being a vocal and
visible ally to LGBTQ+ people globally.
The IoD are combining forces with other groups including InterTech, TechLondonAdvocates, Series Q and the Gay Women’s Network so expect an energising and diverse mix of some of the brightest minds in the space.
The Pride in Business network exists to empower LGBTQ+ business leaders, and their allies, to create tools, events and networking opportunities that showcase inclusivity as being the new business as usual.
