Overview

For most people who don’t identify as LGBT+ (and for some who do), some of the terminology used to describe individuals’ sexuality or gender can be quite tricky to navigate. This LGBT+ workshop will give you a complete rundown of the meanings behind the acronym - from asexual and queer to non-binary and trans. It will also give you a better understanding of pronouns and some useful tips on how to be more inclusive of LGBT+ employees. We will give you and your teams the tools and resources to create a real LGBT+ strategy for your business ensuring that LGBT+ is more than Pride and LGBT History month.
