Event background information: 

‘‘Generation Z’’, people born from the mid-1990s to the mid-2000s, have vastly different attitudes to LGBT inclusion in the workplace and society than their elders. People in the LGBT community are more open about who they are than previous generations were, and demand that their employers be more inclusive. Technological advancement has connected younger generations to global themes, and companies’ diversity and culture are quickly becoming among the most important aspects to prospective employees. If businesses are to succeed in capturing younger talent, they must adapt to cater to the attitudes of Asia’s emerging generations, understand the profound social changes underway in the outlook towards the LGBT community and move into serious advocacy.

Over the past three years The Economist has facilitated conversations around building the business case for LGBT inclusion in the workplace and determining how the private sector can become advocates. A broader discussion on Asia’s social changes, driven by its youth, is required so that businesses can understand the scope of change in LGBT rights in the region, and understand their role in driving change.

To do this, Pride and Prejudice 2019 will bring together government leaders, pioneering millennial entrepreneurs, people from Generation Z who are starting their professional journeys, social activists, business executives, religious leaders and academics. Through discussion, they will determine what inclusive businesses will look like in the future, the role technology will take in advocacy, how businesses and society should nurture young advocates, and how the private sector and government can work to ensure that LGBT inclusion is achieved across the entire region.

Why Attend?

Pride and Prejudice began in 2016 and will continue in 2018 as a global LGBT conference and initiative that will catalyse a fresh debate on the economic and human costs of discrimination against the LGBT community.
