LGBT Confex Gears Up for Business Forum in Colombia




The fifth edition of LGBT CONFEX’s LGBT Business Forum will bring a delegation of international business leaders to this year’s IV Equality Week taking place in Bogota, Colombia from September 28 to October 5, 2014.

This will be the first time that the LGBT Confex will host a full conference outside of Mexico, where previous editions have been held in Puerto Vallarta, Cancun and this year’s Vallarta-Nayarit. The LGBT Business Forum for Bogota’s equality week was especially developed and produced as part of a request by the city of Bogota.

The forum will take place in Camara de Comercio de Bogota – Chapinero. Attendees can expect a B2B and consumer event focused on the LGBT community in an effort to increase awareness and respect for sexual orientation and gender identification in the workplace and in the community in general.

The LGBT Business Forum will open with a showing of Oasis/Keidas, a documentary on the struggles of HIV and indigenous populations in Mexico, which won this year’s Guadalajara Premio Maguey International Film Festival. 

Other participants include Deena Fidas of the Human Right’s Campaign workplace equality program and Daniel Lawrence Smith of the San Francisco-based Out & Equal Workplace Advocates will present workshops focused on LGBT diversity in the workplace Representatives from Mexico’s Mundo Cuervo and Quist App will also be on hand to develop new connections with local businesses.

In addition, it will include elements designed to maximize networking, business, social and educational opportunities.
