Upcoming event – Professionally Speaking: challenges to achieving equality for LGBTI people

Wednesday, 9 March 2016

On Wednesday 16 March, the EU’s Fundamental Rights Agency will launch their latest report on public authorities’ role in achieving equality for LGBTI people. On this occasion, the Intergroup is hosting a roundtable to discuss the report with FRA Director Michael O’Flaherty, MEPs, policy-makers and LGBTI civil society.

Poster first draft

Too often LGBTI people are faced with discrimination and bias in schools, hospitals and police stations. This is why the latest  FRA report focuses on the views and attitudes of the ‘duty bearers’ in various areas of social and economic lives. What role can police officers, policy makers, health and educational practitioners play to further LGBTI equality?

At the roundtable, FRA Director Michael O’Flaherty will present the report. Other speakers will include Evelyne Paradis (ILGA-Europe), Richard Koehler (Transgender Europe), Miriam van der Have (OII Europe). The meeting will be hosted by Fabio Massimo Castaldo MEP, Vice-President of the Intergroup.


The meeting will take place in Brussels, and is open to the public. Please register before Monday 14 March by sending an email to [email protected] with your full name, date of birth, passport/id-number, nationality and place of residence.
