LGBT+ Inclusion & Allyship Training for workplaces
Improve staff retention by ensuring all people feel safe in the workplace, or work towards attracting and retaining a broader market of customer by becoming a genuine LGBT+ ally.
LGBTIQA+ Inclusion Basics
60-90 minute seminar
Begin your journey towards becoming a more LGBTIQA+ inclusive workplace. In this seminar we examine the different identities within LGBTIQA+. Through a combination of our lived experience and that of our facilitators, as well as the diverse range of people we've consulted with to design our training, we help you understand the barriers LGBTIQA+ people face in the workplace. Learn to recognise assumptions about gender and heteronormativity, as well as strategies to avoid making these assumptions.
Let's Talk About LGBTIQA+ Inclusion
2 hour workshop
Take steps to become a safer, more inclusive workplace. In our signature 2 hour workshop, Let's Talk About X will help you understand the experiences of LGBTIQA+ people and the barriers they face in the workplace. With a strong focus on using more inclusive language, we'll help you learn to avoid making assumptions about gender or heteronormativity and use language that will help all staff feel safer, accepted and included. All of our training is informed by lived experience and created in consultation with individuals from diverse backgrounds.
Journey into LGBTIQA+ Allyship
4 hour workshop
Become an ally to LGBTIQA+ people with our half-day 'Journey to Allyship' workshop. Across the span of 4 hours, develop a deep, empathetic understanding of the barriers faced by LGBTIQA+ and dive deep into strategies you can use to help break these down in the workplace. We'll equip you with a range of tools you can use to make LGBTIQA+ staff and customers/clients feel more welcome and work with you to plan for enacting them in the specific context of your workplace.
Journey Further into LGBTIQA+ Inclusion
Full day workshop
Dive even deeper into meaningful systemic and cultural change in our full-day 'Journey to Allyship' workshop. The full day session builds on everything you learn in the half day workshop, but allows extra time to begin to practise the tools that you have learned. Our facilitators will guide you in activities that give you the time to really cement your learning and support you to start putting practices in place in your workplace that will carry over into your everyday work culture.
