Description

The TELUS Health Learning forum offers an engaging and inclusive space for self-reflection, open dialogue and learning about 2SLGBTQIA+ inclusion in workplace settings. Expert presenters will build awareness of the impacts of 2SLGBTQIA+ exclusion and support participants in identifying tools and strategies to cultivate an actively 2SLGBTQIA+ affirming and inclusive workplace.

Sessions are organized around four discussion prompts and include live Q&A.

 

Work with our consultants and expert presenters to choose the focus of the session best suited to your workplace from the following session frameworks:

  1. Making sense of 2SLGBTQIA+ microaggressions
  2. 2SLGBTQIA+ allyship in action
  3. Beyond the binary: 2SLGBTQIA+ inclusion at work
  4. Supporting transitions
