Our communities are becoming more open and diverse, with countless community members, clients, and staff identifying within the LGBTQ+ umbrella. But are our practices, both in and out of the workplace, helping create inclusive spaces? Now is the time to make sure we’re equipped to cultivate safe, welcoming, and inclusive environments for all diverse gender identities. In this training, we'll explore introductory definitions around LGBTQ+ identities, as well as pronouns and how to create inclusive workspaces for both staff and clients: what are gender-neutral pronouns, and how do I use them? What if I accidentally misgender a client or coworker? Why is it important to use expansive & inclusive language? All of these questions will be covered in this training, which seeks to provide an open space for vital conversations on gender inclusivity in the workplace and beyond.

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand basic LGBTQ+ and gender terminology and how it applies to our workplace 
  • Understand how to use gendered and gender-neutral pronouns
  • Understand how to "correct" yourself if you accidentally misgender a client or coworker
  • Understand the importance of creating a safe and diverse workplace.
