2SLGBTQIA+ Workplace Inclusion – for Employees

This workshop can be taken alone, but ideally follows “Intro to 2SLGBTQIA+ Identities and Communities Workshop” unless participants already have similar foundational training that explores 2SLGBTQIA+ identities.
  • 2 Hours
  • Workshop
  • Employees


In this workshop, participants will explore barriers and challenges experienced by 2SLGBTQIA+ colleagues in the workplace and identify actions they can take to “lead from where they are” to support inclusion in their workplace.

Participants will explore proactive measures that contribute to a supportive and inclusive environment, and effective ways to respond to exclusionary language or behaviours.

Scenario based learning provides an opportunity to practice real-life situations and complete the workshop with greater confidence to act as an ally at work. After this workshop, participants will be able to contribute towards making their workplace a more inclusive and supportive space.
