LGBTQ+/2S Inclusion

 

 

Many queer, transgender, and Two-Spirit professionals have experienced some form of bullying, rejection or exclusion in the workplace due to their gender identities or sexual orientation. That does not need to be the experience your employees have.

Employers can lead in building safe spaces within their organizations and setting norms of behaviour that promote inclusion and acceptance of the LGBTQ+/2S community across their operations. For many organizations, that means the normalization of asking individuals for their pronouns, using gender neutral language in job descriptions and in the workplace, and supporting staff in questioning their biases through education initiatives.
