An LGBT and intersex rights group in Mauritius continues to work to protect LGBT and intersex people in the workplace. Although there is an LGBT-inclusive non-discrimination law in Mauritius, Collectif Arc-en-Ciel insists more needs to be done to ensure LGBT and intersex people are treated the same as their heterosexual counterparts. “We do awareness sessions within firms about the importance of equality in the workplace but there is one thing that we are coming up with which is business inclusion of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community in workplaces to raise awareness within organizations,” explained Collectif Arc-en-Ciel’s Jean Danie.
