Inclusion of the LGBTQ+ Community in the Workplace

Brief Synopsis of Program:

We will cover LGBTQ+ vocabulary, explore what identity means and how it develops, and discuss some of the major challenges that the LGBTQ+ community experiences as well as strategies to make spaces more inclusive and welcoming for everyone.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Increased knowledge of and comfort with LGBTQ+ vocabulary.
  2. Greater understanding of what identity is and how it impacts our relationships with other people and society at large.
  3. An appreciation of how relatively small changes can have a huge impact on how welcoming and inclusive your company feels to members and allies of the LGBTQ+ community. 
  4. An appreciation of how relatively small changes can have a huge impact on how welcoming and inclusive your company feels to members and allies of the LGBTQ+ community.
