National Webinar: Employee Assistance Plans from an LGBTQ2+ Inclusive Provider’s Perspective

February 12, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

12pm to 1pm EDT

Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) are designed to support employees, but admittedly many fall short for the LGBTQ2+ community. Increasingly however, tailored programs will streamline LGBTQ2+ people to LGBTQ2+ inclusive providers. Deepak Kashyap is one of those inclusive providers having worked with EAP programs as a counselor while also as a corporate trainer.

During this webinar you will get another window into EAP provision as Deepak will discuss how his practice is more inclusive from other providers, and some of the experiences that he has heard from his clients. You will also learn the challenges faced by mental health EAP providers, and ways that organizations can improve the experience of LGBTQ2+ employees. This webinar will be useful for HR professionals, but also inclusion and LGBTQ2+ employee resource group leaders trying to push to inclusive accessible programs for LGBTQ2+ employees.
