Including LGBTQ2+ employees has gone from moral courage to a business imperative. We can’t tell someone’s sexual orientation or gender identity by looking at them, so the language we use to describe our identities has always been important and somewhat complex. Even those who identify as members of the LGBTQ2+ community can lose track of the most current and appropriate terms as well as how to use them in various workplace situations.

Join us on Thursday, October 22nd, as Jade Pichette, Manager of Programs at Pride at Work Canada discusses how to use inclusive language and how to act in allyship.
