Being LGBT+ is no big deal any more, right? Wrong. The research shows that LGBT+ people still perceive or witness levels of bias and discrimination related to sexual orientation and gender identity and expression. The onus is on employers to ensure their workplaces are inclusive for all peoples. But how do they do that? What is the individual’s role in creating a safe space for their LGBT+ colleagues?

This webinar will provide insights and promising practices of how employers can go beyond pride, celebrate LGBT+ people through the year, and create and maintain inclusive workplaces for LGBT+ people and their allies throughout the year. It will also speak to what individuals can do to play a role in LGBT+ inclusion.
