The global financial crisis left a permanent mark on our understanding of what it means to be prosperous, how to achieve prosperity as well as on future generations. At the Thursday, June 20th day of innovation at the International Arts & Ideas Festival in New Haven, Connecticut, join us for a discussion on: Global Innovators: From Recession to Prosperity.

Panelists will reflect on the study and discuss the direct correlation between innovation and economic prosperity, including the questions of:
Who are the leaders in innovation?
How does innovation help us overcome economic challenges?
How is innovation changing the world in which we live and work?

During the Q&A session, an audience member asked Stonewall representative Daniel Danso why it matters for companies such as Thomson Reuters – and, indeed, any kind of organization – to support the struggle for LGBT people. In this video, he tells the story of the push for equality, and emphasised that the LGBT minority could never have made such social progress without the energetic support of many friends and allies who care about equality. We hope you find it interesting, and look forward to hearing what you think.
The UK & Ireland chapter of our Pride At Work group – for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) employees and their friends – have hosted events on being out in the office, workplace bullying and gender identity.

Whatever your interest in Thomson Reuters, we hope this helps build your knowledge of these topics which matter to us – and on which we focus to create a better workplace for our employees, so they can provide better solutions for our customers.
