This course aims to promote the inclusion of LGBTIQA+ people at work, as well as provide learners with an awareness of behaviours and language that positively and negatively impact LGBTIQA+ people.

Target Audience

This course, for everyone in your workplace, aims to promote the inclusion of LGBTIQA+ people at work, as well as provide learners with an awareness of behaviours and language that positively and negatively impact LGBTIQA+ people.

Today’s workforce is diverse. Have a look at your workplace and the people you work with. Think about how they are different; their sex, gender, ethnicity, age, how they dress, how they behave, even what they believe in. Diverse workforces include people who identify as LGBTIQA+.

Creating LGBTIQA+ inclusive spaces doesn’t just benefit LGBTIQA+ people - inclusion benefits all our employees. Workplaces that are LGBTIQA+ inclusive have been found to outperform those that are not. Inclusion can then organically extend beyond your workplace to the community in which you live.

Forward thinking organisations recognise, appreciate, and embrace the differences within their workforce. If your company has a strong brand built on diversity it will quickly become an employer of choice, in turn attracting and retaining people from all parts of society and strengthening your talent pool. Bringing people from a variety of backgrounds and experiences together results in a high-performing and innovative working environment.

This course will introduce you to LGBTIQA+ people and communities, expand your understanding on sexual orientation and gender identity, and give you a greater understanding of why LGBTIQA+ awareness in the workplace matters.

In an LGBTIQA+ inclusive workplace, everybody wins.
