The LGBT engagement programme aims at showing “how employees at State Street can play an active role in promoting diversity and inclusion in the workplace,” the company said.
Gabriele Schneider, president of Cigale, a gay and lesbian advocacy group, also attended the event, which was held Friday at the firm’s Kirchberg offices.
According to Statec, the national statistics bureau, State Street employed 770 people at the beginning of the year. That makes the fund services provider the country’s 43rd largest employer.
Marty Dobbins, State Street’s chief in Luxembourg, said in a statement: “Our employees have done an incredible job making State Street an inclusive workplace.”
Bettel helped shepherd the Grand Duchy’s marriage and adoption equality law, which took force in January 2015.
