The Economist Events writes:

“The world is divided on LGBT rights. The United States has joined 19 countries where same-sex marriage is the law of the land; in some developing countries attitudes are shifting towards acceptance and many companies are beginning to embrace LGBT rights. Elsewhere, the situation ranges from mild intolerance to rejection and violence. Homosexuality is outlawed in 79 countries, and persecution results in people around the world seeking asylum.

“The issues around LGBT inclusion are something any truly global business needs to be grappling with,” said Zanny Minton Beddoes, editor in chief, The Economist. Pride and Prejudice, a 24-hour event spanning three cities—starting in Hong Kong and moving on to London and New York—will encourage fresh thinking among policymakers and industry leaders on the LGBT movement and its impact on business around the world. Held on March 23rd, Pride and Prejudice will tackle the tough issues pertinent to each region, with one common question in mind: what is the cost of LGBT discrimination?”
