Canada is a country of diversity, but many of our workplaces do not reflect this reality. Even when they do, many workplaces are far from being inclusive spaces where each individual is welcomed and accepted, and their differences are seen as strengths. Unfortunately, prejudices and unconscious bias continue to undergird many of our daily interactions. As a result, people of diverse sexual and gender identities may feel invisible, invalidated, and unable to bring their whole selves to the workplace. This workshop will provide foundational knowledge about gender identity and sexual diversity, discrimination, and the history of 2SLGBTIQ+ rights. Participants will gain a better understanding of what gender identity and sexual diversity means, and learn techniques and strategies to continue building more inclusive workplaces.
