Understanding and Supporting LGBTQ+ Employees

Have you ever felt there was an aspect of yourself that you needed to hide at work? Have you ever worked in an environment where you felt unsafe? For many in the LGBTQ+ community, these feelings are everyday realities, and the pressure to cover important aspects of themselves creates barriers that do not allow them to bring their full selves to their jobs. In this course, diversity, equity, and inclusion thought leader, Rhodes Perry, teaches a framework on how you can engage in acts of allyship to support your LGBTQ+ colleagues. He also offers strategies for organizational leaders to build an LGBTQ+ inclusive organization. Rhodes provides practical examples of LGBTQ+ workplace experiences, explains the value of creating a workplace that gives your LGBTQ+ colleagues what they need to be successful at work, and how individuals and organizations can move LGBTQ+ inclusion forward.
