Trade Unions

We have worked with trade unions on LGBT Diversity and Inclusion in the workplace.

Guide for LGBT employees 

GLEN in collaboration with the Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU) have produced a LGBT workplace equality guide for LGBT employees and trade unions. The guide includes practical information and guidance on:

  • LGBT Equality in the Workplace
  • Coming Out at Work
  • Civil Partnership and the Workplace
  • LGBT Equality and Trade Unions
  • Ten Steps for Inclusion - Promoting LGBT Equality in Trades Unions and the Workplace
  • Dealing with Discrimination and the Equality Tribunal



GLEN and The Association of Secondary Teachers Ireland (ASTI) and the Teachers' Union of Ireland (TUI) to produce a number of resources to assist teachers. For more information and resources see our section on Education.



GLEN have collaborated with the Irish Association of Social Workers (IASW) to produce a good practice resource. This resource informs social workers of what they need to know when providing a service to lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) people and their families. GLEN has also presented at the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation's (INMO) LGBT conference in 2013. For more information and resources on health see our sections on Mental Health and Well Being or Sexual Health.
