Pride in Business: Rt Hon John Bercow MP on modernising Parliament

28 Sep 2017
Institute of Directors, London

Our successful new Pride in Business network continues with a second outstanding speaker event, held at our stunning IoD headquarters at 116 Pall Mall.

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.

We are planning to hold regular events so keep an eye on the discussions on Twitter using the hashtag #IoDPride.

18:30 - Welcome speech
18.35 - Key note speech - The Rt Hon John Bercow MP, Speaker of the House of Commons
