Queer Perspectives: LGBTQ+ Financial Wellbeing.

Kayus Fernander, Katya Veleva, MK Getler and Manuel Schlothauer discuss the importance of Financial Wellbeing and its influence on our state of mind.

In this panel discussion, we explored how to intentionally create better financial outcomes for LGBTQ+ people and the impact of emotional and psychological resilience in negotiation and self-advocacy, as well as the role allies play in knowledge and resource sharing and facilitating trust between historically excluded groups and financial systems and institutions.

Overview of session:

‘How we exist in the financial sense is informed by the way we view ourselves and our relationship with money.’ For many LGBTQ+ professionals, achieving financial stability rests upon their ability to unlearn societal and generational narratives surrounding survival, shame, and self-worth. Advocating for themselves can still feel taboo, especially when pursuing careers within industries or organisations that lack Queer role models and diverse leadership. The compounding effect of discrimination over time has also increased financial fragility rates, particularly among transgender, non-binary people and LGBTQ+ women of colour. Financial wellbeing is a critical goal for the welfare of ALL within the community.

Watch this session to...

- Understand financial wellbeing from a LGBTQ+ and intersectional lens.

- Reframe societal and inherited narratives of success, failure and self-worth.

- Explore the role of allies in closing the financial education gap.

- Identify financial resources and information to help LGBTQ+ employees gain more financial stability in the face of unexpected events.
