This session is in collaboration with Inclusive Workplace and Supply Council.

While diversity changes who is in the room, dignity honours the full authentic self and allows equal participation in the discussion. This virtual panel discussion hosted by Pride at Work Canada will examine how we move from acknowledging diversity to affording all employees dignity in our workplaces. Bringing both business and community leaders to the discussion, attendees will learn about how to create a sense of belonging for LGBTQ2+ employees where they feel not only tolerated, but actively celebrated.

Learning Objectives:

  • The experiences of LGBTQ2+ employees and job seekers
  • Where general diversity strategies fall short
  • Strategies to innovate a culture of dignity for all employees

Audience:

  • General employee population
  • Human Resources professionals
  • LGBTQ2+ employee resource group members
  • Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Professionals
