The typical conversation about diversity and inclusion focuses on employees bringing their whole selves to work. However, it’s important for employers to recognize the needs of their workers who care for LGBTQ2+ kids and family members, who are also impacted by biphobia, homophobia and transphobia in the workplace. In this webinar Giselle Bloch will share her family’s story and explain that although there is no roadmap for parents of kids who come out there are ways employers and employee resource groups (ERGs) can help.
