Event Details

Overview


LGBT Great is delighted to invite you to our International Non-Binary People's Day conversation. This engaging online event will not only mark the importance of International People's Day globally, but also provide you with an insight into non-binary identities and how financial service organisations can develop their corporate inclusion of non-binary people. 

What is International Non-Binary People's Day? 


  • International Non-Binary People's Day is observed each year on 14 July and aims at raising awareness and organising around the issues faced by non-binary people around the world.
  • This date shines a light on non-binary people and celebrates the community's rich and vast diversity.
  • The day was first celebrated in 2012. The date was chosen for being precisely between International Men's Day and International Women's Day. 


How is LGBT Great marking this important day? 


  • LGBT Great is leading the conversation across our membership community to encourage more transgender and non-binary confident conversations. 
  • We will also be sharing useful learning and role modelling some of our wonderful transgender and non-binary Project 1000 Role Models and Allies. 
  • You can also join this conversation to learn more about our Turning The Corner Report.
