While everyone spends time thinking about what we want to be when we grow up, some people’s career choices are more calculated than others due to their sexuality and gender identity and the safety that some professions afford over others. Coming out in the workplace can be unsettling, as many share concerns over how colleagues may react personally as well as professionally and what this might mean for personal growth within the organization. This webinar will feature a panel of speakers who share their stories of coming out in the workplace, with the aim of providing an understanding of how colleagues can provide support to those going through this process.
