​In this special 3-part series of The GRID Podcast from our friends at Eames Partnership, we celebrate Pride Month.

The team bring together some of the LGBTQ+ community from within the reinsurance and insurance market. In this episode, an expert panel discusses some of the more challenging issues when it comes to LGBTQ+. 

We often hear complaints that employers are too quick to lump all members of the LGBTQ+ community together as a homogenous group and assume that all of their wants and needs are the same. In this episode, there is a poignant take on the lost learning opportunities from lumping everyone together, which then segues into some really important points about another topic I’m passionate about when it comes to D&I – the importance of intersectionality.

You can listen to the full episode on AppleSpotify and other podcast platforms.
