UN GLOBE is the inter-agency association representing LGBTIQ+ people in the UN system. Founded in 1997, UN GLOBE was established in response to the need for better information and knowledge exchange about issues in the UN workplace, particularly amongst LGBTIQ+ people.

UN-GLOBE's goal is the inclusion, equity, and non-discrimination of LGBTIQ+ people in the UN System and its peacekeeping operations. To achieve this goal, UN-GLOBE advocates for inclusive and equitable employment conditions, diverse, safe, and enabling working environments and cultures & the representation and engagement of LGBTIQ+ people.

In this interview Gurchaten Sandhu, the President of UN-GLOBE, shares the work of UN-GLOBE through his own personal journey.
