Getting Bi at Work: Getting to Cultural Competence in the Workplace
Approximately half of all non-heterosexual people identify as bisexual. And yet bisexual people are far less likely than lesbian- or gay-identified people to be out at work, or to join LGBT employee resource groups. What’s going on? This workshop covers the basics about bisexual identity, population data and trends, and explains how employers can better welcome bisexuals into the ERGs and in the workplace. Through an interactive exercise we will then delve deeper into he unconscious biases bisexuals encounter in the workplace and provide tools for identifying and eliminating biases.
The Changing Landscape of Identity: Understanding Gender Identity & Sexual Orientation
The youth of today are your future colleagues. Their understanding of sexuality and gender is notably different from that of previous generations, and they are using identity in new ways. What do we need to know in order to welcome these new colleagues into the workforce?
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 2018? 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
For a dynamic, interactive, non-traditional experience!
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 LGBTQ+ friendly is our workplace? In this fun and interactive program we explore different experiences of identity; the interplay between gender and sexuality; the complexities of attraction, and more.
