Connecting Networks event at PwC Amsterdam very successful
January 21, 2010
On Tuesday January 19th PwC hosted our 3rd Connecting Networks Event in their Amsterdam office. These events are at the heart of what Company Pride Platform is all about – bringing our member company LBGT employee networks together to share and learn from one another.
This session was focused on Communication – how we as LGBT Networks communicate within our companies, what works, and what our challenges are. Leaders from all 10 of our member networks participated in the session which included best practice sharing and team problem solving. Through round table dialogue we identified 3 specific topics that were our biggest common :
- Reaching out to grow your network (LGBT non-members, staff who are not out in the workplace),
- Keeping members active, and re-activating dormant members
- Maintaining interest through communication that is relevant and fresh
The small group workshops to discuss and make plans for these 3 areas were lively and produced many good ideas that can benefit all member networks.
Connecting Network Events are sponsored and organized by CPP member networks for CPP member networks and are held 4 times per year. The next event is being planned for the March-April time frame.
