    Presented By: Terald Montgomery

    The times are changing!  Gone are the days of hiding your true self – these days, employees in the LGBTQ+ community want to bring their whole selves to work and celebrate what makes them unique.  However, this can pose a new set of challenges, for both HR and associates.

    This one hour information session is designed to prepare HR professionals on different ways to foster a more inclusive culture to the LGBTQ+ community within their organizations. Everything from what words / terms to use, what ones to avoid, and how HR can help change the tone of gender & identity inclusivity in the workplace will be reviewed. Questions are encouraged – this presentation is designed to be a discussion on best practices, respect and education on LGTBQ+ issues and concerns.   

    As a result, members will be able to create a more diverse and inclusive culture within their organizations by:

    • re-writing policies and handbooks that include language geared towards people within the LGBTQ+ community
    • training business partners on sensitivity around LGBTQ+ issues and vocabulary that fosters inclusivity.
