Partnership aims to help organizations better address the needs of the LGBTQ+ community
MCLEAN, Va., Sept. 27, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- OneRep, an automated privacy protection platform that removes unauthorized private listings from the web, today announced it has partnered with Insure Equality, a technology company committed to creating cultural change within the insurance industry. The partnership aims to help advance inclusion and engagement of LGBTQ+ employees in America's workforce.
"We are thrilled to announce this new partnership with Insure Equality and bring awareness to the many complex forms of injustices LGBTQ+ people face in the workplace," said Dimitri Shelest, CEO and Founder of OneRep. "Together we'll be able to help organizations and employers better support their LGBTQ+ employees, allowing for a safer, more positive, and productive work environment for all."
Over the past decade there has been a significant effort made by the government and companies to make the workplace more inclusive, but this effort is nowhere near enough. Many workplaces, intentionally or not, are not culturally competent or using best practices to serve and protect LGBTQ+ employees or clients. While some legal protections are in place, LGBTQ+ employees continue to face hostility in the workplace, from harassment to discrimination and even violence.
"An internet search often provides people with addresses, phone numbers, or, more perilously for the trans community, dead names. 2021 was the deadliest year for gender-diverse people, and 2022 has not changed that narrative," said Elisa Stampf, CEO & Co-Founder of Insure Equality. "Our entire executive team is in the LGBTQ+ community, and this message, this product, hits home for us uniquely. Additionally, members of our team have been subject to various forms of violence, another reason to be able to keep your information private."
It is imperative for organizations and companies to ensure that diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts include individuals who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) for business success in today's landscape and to advance LGBTQ+ workplace equality and employee engagement.
This partnership will help provide the vital inclusion tools and services organizations need to better serve the LGBTQ+ community and cultivate a workplace environment with safe and supportive spaces, programs, and offices for LGBTQ+ employees – both affirming OneRep's values of equity and inclusion as a company, and commitment to helping foster a positive work environment, where individuals feel safe, valued and respected, regardless of their gender, sexual orientation or race.
