The LGBTIQ Employment Equality Index is the project of The Headhunter Group, implemented in BiH with the UN Women’s Office. The purpose of implementing the Index is to raise awareness of the discrimination LGBTIQ population faces in the workplace, as well as to increase equality, diversity and other positive practices in relation to candidates and employees.
