Gender and Sexuality in the Workplace

This one-hour training session is suitable for any organisation that would like to understand more about the LGBT+ community and their particular challenges when interacting in the workplace.

The session takes a practical approach to protecting the people in and around your organisation from becoming the victims of assumptions/prejudice by providing attendees with an understanding of what it means to be LGBT+ in the workplace.

Providing hints and tips for working alongside employees or customers who are LGBT+, this session communicates the standard of behaviour that any organisation seeking to do the right thing would expect its people to maintain towards LGBT+ clients, employees and others within and external to the organisation.

The session covers:

  • What it means to have an intersex condition
  • What it means to be transgender
  • Sexual orientation and what it means for employees
  • What to do when someone comes out as L, G, B or T at work
  • The process of transitioning from one gender to another

  • The problems encountered by transgender people in the workplace
  • Transgender youngsters (special addition for those who work with children)
  • Transgender people and mental health (special addition for those who work in the area of health and mental health services)
