Northern Trust Sponsors LGBTQ+ Workplace Inclusion Event
Northern Trust’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion activities are worldwide and led by leadership teams across the world. This approach has pushed dialogues around DE&I and LGBTQ+ inclusion in our business and people initiatives to the top of our priority list.
We were thrilled to co-present and support the 2023 PFIP – Philippine Financial & Inter-Industry Pride CEO Forum in Manila, Philippines – an executive session on transformational allyship and the role of corporations in LGBTQ+ workplace inclusion.
Coy Macaspac-Ordonez, CPA, Northern Trust Country Executive – Philippines, was one of the event’s panelists. Other attendees were senior executives from premier enterprises and employers of choice from key industry groups around the Philippines.
“Given our long-standing commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, we understand that LGBTQ+ inclusion must be driven by top-down support and accountability.” While we have done a lot of important work in this area, we are aware that there is still much more we can do to create inclusive workplaces for varied gender identities both within and outside of our company. As a result, we are glad of our collaboration with the Philippine Financial and Inter-Industry Pride, as well as the larger corporate pride community.”
