Webinar description

Organisations have increasingly shown their commitment to sexual minority employees and customers with inclusive marketing and rainbow advertising.

But what concrete steps should organisations take to support their sexual minority staff, and how can businesses celebrate Pride when there are still so many challenges that LGBTQ+ individuals face worldwide?

We hear from experts in the field and draw on lived experience interviews to look at the challenges that sexual minorities encounter in the workplace and what organisations can do to enable them to feel comfortable being themselves at work.

Our panel is made up of LGBTQ+ individuals and allies, along with interviews from several LGBTQ+ leaders and speakers. test

This webinar covered:

  • Why sexual orientation is important to a person’s identity
  • The stereotypes that sexual minority individuals face in the workplace
  • The challenges and rewards of being out at work
  • Policies and procedures to support sexual minorities
  • Steps for creating a workplace culture where people can bring their whole selves to work
  • What is Pride, and why does it matter?

We live in a very heteronormative society. We have this certain expectation that you’ll meet a person of the opposite sex, get married, have children, and whilst we appreciate that that's not everyone's journey, the fact is that the world around us still very much gives that narrative to us.
