As the acronym of identities grows longer, the discussion over what letters should be included and what they all stand for becomes increasingly lengthy as well. This webinar provides the building blocks of the rainbow as we explore terminology and identity in relation to diverse genders and sexualities and common stereotypes that impact perceptions and behaviours. In addition, we will examine language used in the workplace and how to ensure inclusive communication practices and friendly branding techniques, in efforts to eliminate barriers faced by the LGBTQ2+ community.
