The Changing Landscape of Identity: LGBTQIA+ Identities & Experiences in 2021 | Online

About this event

LGBT. LGBTQ. LGBTQQIA. QUILTBAGS. Every day, it seems that there are more and more letters. What are some of the new labels? How are people using and experiencing sexual orientation and gender in 2021? And what do you need to know to be culturally competent in this area? Bring your questions, and an open mind.

We will start with defining common terms, explore simple steps to move your workplace to a more inclusive atmosphere, and dig into the results of creating a welcoming environment. No matter where you are in your understanding of the queer community and how it impacts workplace and everyday culture, this will be an open and safe space to ask questions and grow together.

  • Become more cultural competent with gender and orientation based terms
