A report published this year by the CIPD found that over the past 12 months, 40% of LGBTQ+ employees, and 55% of transgender workers have experienced conflict in workplace. The study also found that over a third of LGBTQ+ staff and one in four trans people have concealed their identity out of fear of discrimination.
These alarmingly high figures are a reminder that LGBTQ+ people continue to face prejudice and abuse in the workplace and this needs to change.
Understanding and approaching gender identity and sexual orientation in the workplace can be challenging, and with the expanding terminology on this subject, it is vital that employers educate themselves and work proactively to show their commitment to providing an inclusive and safe workplace for all.
Discussion points for this webinar will include:
- A masterclass in the evolving terminology of gender identity and sexual orientation
- How to manage gender related issues in the workplace
- Best practices for creating an LGBTQ+ inclusive workplace
