Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation: Creating Inclusive Environments
Many nonprofits are exploring ways to create more LGBTQ+ inclusive environments and foster greater gender equity in the workplace. Grounded in story-telling and interactive activities, this workshop will explore gender bias, gender identity, and sexual orientation, and the relationship these have to organizational policies and practices. We will pay special attention to the impact of COVID-19 on LGBTQ+ communities and other topics relevant to your organizations.
We’ll start with looking at ourselves – what biases and stereotypes do we hold? Then, we’ll think about how this impacts our work and the people we serve. Finally, we’ll explore organizational policies and practices. Our training style is interactive, fun, intersectional, and practical – including scenarios, videos, sharing personal experiences, and discussions.
