IndustriALL is committed to advocating for the rights and inclusion of LGBTQI+ workers. Recognizing the diverse challenges they face, we strive to create safe and respectful workplaces globally no matter the gender identity or sexual orientation of workers.

Our focus is on facilitating dialogue and building networks that share best practices and resources, ensuring LGBTQI+ voices are amplified and heard. We embrace intersectionality and decolonization approaches to understand and combat the multiple forms of discrimination affecting LGBTQI+ communities.

By working collaboratively with unions worldwide, IndustriALL aims to foster a more inclusive and representative movement where every worker is respected and valued.
