Presenter: Colin Druhan (he/him), Executive Director, Pride at Work Canada
Description: Should I still use LGBT or should it be LGBTQ2+ now? What does Queer mean? What’s the difference between Trans and Transgender? What should I do if I make a mistake? There are no simple answers to these questions, as the LGBTQ2+ communities are creative and diverse. The vocabulary we use when talking about diverse gender expressions, gender identities and sexual orientations is very important, but it’s also constantly shifting. This webinar will help you think differently about some of the most common questions related to commonly used vocabulary in our communities and how to receive feedback about the language we use. Utilizing examples from the Pride at Work Canada’s networking breakfasts, and questions we’ve received from our 100+ National and Regional partners we will review considerations for your communications strategies.
