Workplace Application:
Attendees will learn how HR can build inclusivity within the fibers of the workplace, eliminating bias and building trust one non-binary and transgender employee at a time. 

Life is full of the unexpected, the difficult, the overwhelming, the uncomfortable...shouldn't we, as HR Professionals, pave the way for employees to be their authentic selves? To educate, enlighten, engage, and energize the workforce? We are the voice of those unable to speak, the confidant to lighten the load and the professional to hold people accountable when their bias and judgement get in the way of respect in our workplaces.

This session will give you the courage to remove those biases and see how they impact the inclusivity you are striving to create.

Walk away with personal stories that give you the why...why this is important to your organization, your employees and your community.

Learning Objectives:

  • Using the power of persuasion to teach leaders that every voice matters.

  • Understand the term non-binary.
  • Understand gender expression is not a threat to traditional roles.
  • Interweaving inclusivity within your policies and operations in your workplace.

In-person session offerings are on a first-come, first-served basis.
