Within the framework of the Atlantic Conference, projects, experiences and any initiative that helps to know and better understand the reality of LGBTI people will be made visible. For this, in addition, of the main presentations, there will be room for brief presentations that allow knowing other situations in a shorter and more direct way, such as the PITCHING format.

These presentations will be made after the presentation of the main presentations. They will be 3 or 4 presentations and should be framed in one of the following two axes:

  • Situation of the human rights of LGBTI people.
  • Good practices to encourage the inclusion of LGBTI people in the company.

For the presentation of each proposal, it will be necessary to register it according to the form shown below. The proposal must be submitted in PDF format and may not exceed three pages in length.
