UN-GLOBE, founded in 1996, has expanded over the past few years across the UN system and across duty stations, with over 50 representatives around the world. It is now recognized as the organization that represents LGBTIQ+ people in the UN System by senior leadership. Among its achievements in recent years are recognition of same-sex unions, equal pension rights, and inclusion for LGBTIQ+ people in anti-discriminatory policies. UN-GLOBE has also given inputs to numerous policies, from mobility to sexual harassment, and helped bring greater awareness about the experiences of trans and gender non-conforming people within the UN System through its recommendations for an inclusive workplace. Currently, its priorities include ensuring that within the UN System there is inclusive parental leave, granting equal leave time to all parents, regardless of their gender, and whether they have given birth, adopted, or had a child through surrogacy.
