SME’s: Backbone of the European economy:” Examining the LGBT contribution and looking towards the future

Presented by European Gay Managers Association (EGMA)

Making the voice of LGBT people heard in European SMEsAccording to the European Commission, more than 99% of all European businesses are in fact small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), providing two out of three of the private sector jobs and contributing more than half of the total value-added created by businesses in the EU. Moreover, SMEs are the true back-bone of the European economy, being primarily responsible for wealth and economic growth, next to their key role in innovation and R&D. This workshop looks at the role of LGBT owners and employees in SMEs and how their increased visibility can provide greater strength and innovation to the European economy.
