February 10, 2020

On January 23, a new episode of the Secret to Voices podcast (done in collaboration with El País) was recorded at the International Institute of Madrid. Isabel Durán and Marta Fernández Herraiz from the LGBTI LesWorking organization interviewed Eva Pérez, a lawyer and vice president of REDI (Business Network for LGBTI Diversity and Inclusion in Spain) and Ízaro Assa, leader of the LGBTI network and allies at BBVA.

John Rhatigan, Deputy Press Attaché, noted: “For the U.S. Embassy, supporting diversity, both in society and in business, has been and continues to be a priority. That is why we have supported LesWorking’s initiatives more than three years ago when they started this series of programs. In fact, the defense of LGBTI rights is fundamental, not only for our Embassy, ​​but for all American diplomatic missions around the world. For that reason, we focus on the organization and support of activities and programs in this area.”
