As the acceptance of LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) people and their economic power continues to climb, fully understanding and embracing LGBTQ diversity is truly a critical business and organizational imperative. This workshop outlines the compelling rationale for all organizations to fully embrace LGBTQ inclusion and to build the business case. It explores the many policies and programs to implement, including a deep dive into the transgender and gender transition areas. Participants will: ● Articulate the compelling business rationale for fully supporting LGBTQ+ diversity. ● Understand the wide range of policies and procedures to support an LGBTQ+ diversity and inclusion strategy. ● Gain a deeper understanding of transgender people and the process of gender transitioning. ● Leave with practical ideas of how to address various LGBTQ situations that may arise in the workplace.
