Local influencer program

Our Local Influencer Programs build strong business support for LGBT+ inclusive societies in countries around the world. These programs begin by conducting country-specific research on the economic and business case for LGBT+ inclusion. This research is used to bring together business leaders to determine how to use it to advance LGBT+ inclusion in society. We hire a full-time Program Director based in the focus country to run the program and to ensure it is grounded in local realities.
