LGBT Inclusion in the workplace

Webinar June 23 looks at issues employers should be considering

Pride festivals play a pivotal role in Canada’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans communities. And, while having a week or so to celebrate gender identity is wonderful, being LGBT is also 365 days a year. It’s imperative for employers to ensure that they’re creating inclusive workplaces for their LGBT people all year round. Recent news events have made this topic all the more relevant today.

The Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion will host a webinar next week that looks at issues employers should be considering.

LGBT 365: Going Beyond Pride to Being LGBT-Inclusive Year Round
Thursday, June 23, 3 pm to 4 pm

 Michael Bach, CCDI’s Founder and CEO, and founder of Pride at Work Canada, 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.

Who should attend: Employers, Managers or Leaders interested in increasing and/or securing support for their LGBT team members

"In & Out: Diverging Perspectives on LGBT+ Inclusion in the Workplace" examines the issues of LGBT self-identification and discrimination in Canadian workplaces.

One of the largest studies of its kind, the report summarizes the findings of a major survey that received responses from over 1,400 Canadians between Dec. 1, 2014 and Jan. 31, 2015. The report provides recommendations for employers to improve LGBT inclusion in Canadian workplaces.
