2nd Annual Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Conference – Stakeholder Focus Group
Location: Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago
Date: 17 May 2023
Info: In line with the theme of IDAHOTBI 2023, PrideTT recently joined forces with the T&T Chamber of Industry & Commerce’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Committee to address workplace exclusion and prejudice faced by marginalized groups. Through a collaborative effort, a focus group was organized, bringing together representatives from ten marginalized communities.
The purpose of this initiative was to provide a platform for individuals who often find themselves excluded from discussions pertaining to their own assistance. PrideTT, drawing from its own networks and influence, sought to create an inclusive space for these groups, much like the LGBTQ+ community, who are frequently underrepresented in such conversations. Participants openly shared their experiences, commending the initiative as a much-needed intervention.
The event is founded in the basis that it is important that individuals with privileges extend a helping hand to vulnerable groups, who must come together in their diversity.
The valuable insights gleaned from the focus group will be distilled into a thought-leadership paper, scheduled for publication on June 1st at the 2023 DEI Conference. This publication aims to contribute to ongoing discussions surrounding diversity, equity, and inclusion.
