11:30 - 12:30 Impact Investing - Bringing LGBT+ Inclusion to the Stock Market. Room L3
"Investors are gradually becoming aware of an emerging class of investment opportunities: LGBT-friendly investments. The equity performance of companies with LGBT-friendly policies can be successfully tracked via index or index-related products and show a demonstrably higher return on investment compared to the average index. In addition, participation in LGBT-friendly funds can be leveraged as positive branding in your marketing of other goods and services, provide access to LGBT-markets and contribute to creating a more inclusive corporate climate. LGBT-Friendly investment funds can also have a role in improving overall attitudes toward LGBT people in society and support the development of the next generation of entrepreneurs.
OutPerform addresses the global trend of increased acceptance and proliferation of LGBT-friendly policies in corporations across all sectors and presents a way that leverages Nasdaq to serve current and new market participants by introducing a product that will grant direct exposure to the LGBT market segment.

14:45 - 15:30 Discrimination and victimisation of LGBT+ persons in the workplace. What are your rights? Room L7 and Digital
"What is discriminatory behaviour and what safety net exists? How are LGBT+ persons discriminated against in the workplace and what can I do if this happens to me? How many times do I have to stand down from being appointed to a certain position on the basis that I do not conform to norms in the workplace? Is it enough that I feel excluded in different contexts or how serious must the exclusion be before I can raise the issue? Could a power imbalance be a contributing factor to the emergence of discrimination and how do we view it from an intersectional perspective?
Participant: Bahhar Mohammadi and Amira Alajbegovic, regional negotiators at Unionen.

16:00 - 17:00 Sexual harassment of LGBT+ persons in the workplace. What are your rights? Room L7 and Digital
Is it acceptable to leave a room with a bad feeling? An unwelcome gesture from a customer, colleague or manager? A sexist comment that you are only lesbian because you haven’t found the “right” man yet? Should I not take part in the friendly padel match at work in order to avoid uncomfortable situations in the locker room? Are the experiences of LGBT+ persons different from those who express heteronormativity? To whom do I turn? But, above all, where do I draw the line and how passive should I be when I see someone being harassed? We employ an intersectional perspective on harassment in order to determine the governing structures and how the power imbalance influences our views on sexual harassment.
Participant: Lina Andersson, Policy officer of Gender and Diversity at Unionen.
