Visibility: that is the name of the new Company Pride Platform quarterly newsletter which will begin distribution next week. Visibility does just what the name implies by showing clearly and precisely what the CPP has been doing in the past several months. It also makes sure that this message gets out to those people who want to help create workplaces where LGBT people can be themselves.
If you have not signed up for the CPP Newsletter, please do so quickly before the fist edition is distributed. Just go to the newsletter register field on the CPP Website, enter your email, and you are ready to go.

LGBT Magazine “Gay & Night”, one of the leading gay magazines in the Dutch market, interviews Company Pride Platform Executive Director, David Pollard in their most recent edition. According to Pollard many employers don’t really know what they need to do to address the position of LGBT people at work. “The CPP is here to help bridge that gap of understanding. We do this by working closely with LGBT employee networks and directly with the management of large employers.” When asked if the CPP acts as a problem-solver, Pollard said: “We are more of a solution-finder.We work hard to find mutually beneficial and long-term sustainable solutions for all parties so that problems do not occur”.
Eleven Major Organizations sign the Declaration of Amsterdam
Workplace Pride is proud to announce that 10 organizations have signed the Declaration of Amsterdam during it’s 2012 New Year’s Reception. The Declaration of Amsterdam is the first step in creating a real, measurable improvement in the workplace for lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgender employees (LGBT). It calls upon employers, employees, unions, and governments to work together to develop a measurable benchmark for a gay-friendly workplace. The declaration was announced on 1 July 2011 at Workplace Pride’s (then operating under the name of Company Pride Platform) 5th International LGBT Business Conference in Amsterdam and was directed to all employers, employees, unions and governments in Europe.
Although apprearing after the Press Release, TNT Express also signed the Declaration, making it the 11th organziation to do so. Other organizations are invited to sign the Declaration of Amsterdam and can contact Workplace Pride for more information. Organizations themselves are responsible for implementing the 10 points of the Declaration of Amsterdam. However, as a complement to its Declaration, and using that document as a starting point, Workplace Pride will develop an international benchmark which will measure LGBT inclusiveness in workplaces everywhere in the world.
