India's leading diversity job portal Equiv.in has launched the first edition of its path-breaking initiative "Q-rious", an event platform for corporates seeking to broaden their diversity and inclusion mandate, to understand the perspectives of the LGBTQ+ community. The event is scheduled for 23 November 2019.
Participating companies will also gain insights on the economic impact of excluding the community from the workplace and will have the opportunity to engage in unstructured discussions with members of the community about ways to identify and absorb talent from the community to the private sector.
The 'by-invite' only event is conceptualized by Stockroom.io, Equiv.in's parent company and Humsafar Trust, one of the oldest and most reputed Non-Governmental Organizations working for LGBTQ rights. The entry is free for members of the LGBTQ+ community. Stockroom.io drew inspiration for the 'Q-rious' platform from its hugely successful 'Women Changemakers' event, a job fair designed to promote gender diversity in the corporate sector that brings female talent and leading corporates across multiple sectors together in a day-long networking programme.

The corporates, who will be enlightened with a pre-event sensitisation workshop will be actively involved in the 'career zone' section of the event, a talent outreach programme powered by The Humsafar Trust, which will work as an informal job fair to help corporates with talent mapping to identify suitable candidates.
