27 September 2017 : The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) released a Global Charter to support business in the fight against discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTIQ) in the workplace.
1/ Facts : High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, called on the private sector to play its role in promoting the inclusion of LGBTIQ persons in the workplace.
“Change requires the active participation of all parts of society – including, above all, the business world,” he said.
“Business decisions, whether in human resources, investment, procurement, and even marketing, can have a real, sometimes profound, impact on human rights,” he continued.
2/ Our experience : by promoting the inclusion of LGBTIQ persons in the workplace, we fight together the risk of poverty because of the risk of discrimination and unjustified dismissals, and the dramatic consequences, such as LGBTIQ persons become precarious persons or homeless persons.
