myGwork, the largest global LGBTQIA talent platform, has had a busy week! They’ve raised £1.3m in investment which will be used to further enhance myGwork’s e-learning products, offered through the myGwork Academy, and other projects.
“A large portion of the funding package consisted of grant support from Innovate UK which will be used to support our network growth and user experience,” explained myGwork’s Chief Strategy Officer, Stephan Heinz. “New products include adding our first Spanish language course, and launching an additional course on Intersectionality, covering a much-needed knowledge gap, as confirmed by the majority of our clients.”
Alongside this, myGwork have appointed Lori L. Harmon as the new Chair of the Board. Harmon is the Vice President and Global Head of Business Development at Cloudflare, and is ready to continue with myGwork’s mission to create safer and more inclusive workspaces. This mission speaks especially to Harmon who has seen a close member of her family experience anti-LGBTQIA discrimination in their career.
Commenting on the new appointment, Harmon said: “I am honoured to have been offered the role of Chair of the Board at myGwork. It’s a chance to leverage my unique perspectives, expertise, and passion to lead myGwork into a brighter future. Together with an exceptional team, we’ll pave the way for inclusivity and diversity, driving positive global change in the world. Diversity is a proven competitive edge!”
