GWN Multicultural started its focus work with LGBT women of Asian heritage in December 2009 as GWN Asia. The initial desire was to enable Asian LGBT women to meet and reduce the sense of isolation associated with being a minority within a minority, and to re-affirm an identity as a confident LGBT professional of colour by interacting with people similar to one self. Recognising the need and popularity for events that resonate with LGBT professionals of all ethnic minority backgrounds the remit expanded to all under-represented ethnicities and was re-branded GWN Multicultural (GWNM) in June 2010.
Current members of GWN Multicultural include those who identify themselves as Chinese, Singaporean, Indian, Mixed Race, Caribbean, Black and Japanese.
Create an inviting space for LGBT ethnic minority professional women where professional development and cultural identity intersect.
