On 25 September 2017, the Vice Chair of the Eurocham HR and Training Committee Mr. Khuat Van Trung joined spoke at the event "Work with Pride", organised by ICS, with the support of the Irish Embassy, Amcham, and PwC, among other organisations. The event was dedicated to discussing Equality for LGBTIQ employees at the workplace.
Mr. Trung had the opportunity to express EuroCham's positions at the event, addressing also some ideas on how to effectively implement LGBTIQ-inclusive policies in the workplace. He responded to many relevant questions from the audience, as for instance how should LGBTIQ fresh graduates approach job applications for companies that have not implemented inclusive policies, or how to raise further awareness on these crucial issues.
