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 a critical business and organizational imperative. Supporting LGBTQ+ employees and customers involves allyship, a grasp of the compelling business case, and the implementation of a full range of best practices to address LGBTQ+ inclusion in the workplace. Participants will: ● Understand the importance of and the meaning of true allyship. ● Articulate the compelling business rationale for fully supporting LGBTQ+ diversity. ● Explore the wide range of policies and procedures to support an LGBTQ+ diversity and inclusion strategy. ● Gain a deeper understanding of the fast-growing area of transgender and nonbinary people, and the appropriate use of pronouns. ● Leave with practical ideas of how to address various LGBTQ+ situations that may arise in the workplace.
