Unlocking Career Potential: 5 Essential Insights from the 2024 PFIP Workplace Inclusion Report

On April 30, 2024, the Philippine Financial & Inter-Industry Pride (PFIP) unveiled its 2024 PFIP LGBTQ+ Workplace Inclusion Report at the University of the Philippines (UP) School of Statistics Auditorium in Diliman, Quezon City. Drawing insights from over 80 companies spanning various sectors, the report delves into workplace diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I), providing a comprehensive overview of key findings.

#1: PFIP's Advocacy for LGBTQ+ Workplace Inclusivity

Established in 2013, PFIP, a non-profit organization comprising LGBTQ+ employee resource group representatives and human resource/diversity professionals from private firms in the Philippines, has been at the forefront of advocating progressive DE&I policies. Its mission revolves around fostering workplace environments where Filipino LGBTQ+ talents can flourish devoid of gender-based discrimination and harassment.

The report launch attracted corporate leaders, HR professionals, DE&I advocates, and members of the LGBTQ+ community, underscoring collaborative endeavors driving workplace inclusion in the Philippines. Through presentations and panel discussions, the event highlighted industry experts and LGBTQ+ advocates sharing insights and best practices for cultivating inclusive workplaces.

#3: Corporate Inclusivity on the Rise

The 2024 PFIP LGBTQ+ Workplace Inclusion Report showcases the strides taken by companies such as Aboitiz Power Corporation, Cebu Pacific, GCash, and JP Morgan Chase & Co. in implementing comprehensive DE&I policies. These policies ensure equal access to medical, insurance, and family-related benefits for LGBTQ+ employees, alongside mechanisms to combat workplace bullying, harassment, and discrimination, complemented by the establishment of support systems like LGBTQ+ employee resource groups and ally networks.

#4: Advocacy Programs for LGBTQ+ Workplace Inclusion

The event also provided a platform to review PFIP's ongoing projects and initiatives geared towards supporting LGBTQ+ workplace inclusion. Initiatives like the Pride Summit facilitate dialogue among industry leaders on DE&I strategies, while the Rainbow Youth Academy empowers young LGBTQ+ talents through vocational training, financial inclusion, and internship opportunities. Additionally, educational modules such as "Trans 101: Focus on the Transgender Experience" and "Decoding Unconscious Bias in the Workplace" offer deeper insights into LGBTQ+ issues.
