Bisexuality 101: Getting to Cultural Competence in the Workplace
Many bisexuals don’t join employee resource groups because they don’t understand how the ERG would benefit them or because they fear they wouldn’t be welcome. Bisexuals who are in mixed-gender relationships who do join the ERG may be misperceived as straight. Likewise, bisexuals in same-gender relationships may be misperceived as gay or lesbian. This workshop covers the basics about bisexual identity and community and explains how employers can better welcome bisexuals into their ERGs and in the workplace. Through an interactive exercise, we will then delve deeper into the unconscious biases bisexuals encounter in the workplace and provide tools for identifying biases and eliminating them.

Deciphering the Alphabet Soup of Sexual Orientation and Gender Identities – LGBT. LGBTQ. LGBTQQIA. QUILTBAGS. Every day, it seems that there are more and more letters. What are some of the new labels? How are people using and experiencing sexual orientation and gender in 2017? And what do you need to know to be culturally competent in this area? Bring your questions, and an open mind.
Beyond Binaries: Identity and Sexuality
This program explores the landscape of sexuality, and how we “map” sexual orientation. How do we assign labels to our complicated and unique experiences? In this interactive workshop we will conduct an anonymous survey of those present, and look together at the data. Where do we fall on the sexuality continuum? How do we label? How old were we when we came to our identities and to our sexualities? In this fun and interactive program we explore different experiences of identity; the interplay between gender and sexuality; the complexities of attraction, and more.
