LGBTQ2+ Inclusion Making Meaningful Connections and Activating Allyship

Events < 1 read

November 5, 2020
12:30 pm – 1:30 pm ET

Please note that this program will be delivered in French.

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, November 5th, as Florence Gagnon, Programming Assistant of Quebec, from Pride at Work Canada discusses how to use inclusive language and how to act in allyship.

Quebec CLE: Training for which eligibility has been confirmed by the Barreau du Québec for the purposes of obligatory continuing legal education, for the duration of 1 hour.
