Gender Identity – What does it mean?
LGBTI Diversity in the Workplace
Why is an Inclusive Workplace Important
The Law Society’s EEO committee’s employment law conference on 7 September 2018 included an awareness training module presented by Ashleigh Sternes, Pride in Diversity. Following on from the success of that workshop, Ashleigh is back in Hobart on Friday 22 February 2019 to deliver a refresher of the material presented at the 2018 Employment Law Conference (Working with a Diverse Client Base – The Why and What) which will be followed by an Ally Training workshop ‘Engaging Allies for Change – The How’.
Pride in Diversity is a national not-for-profit employer support program for all aspects of LGBTI workplace inclusion. Pride in Diversity was established by ACON Australia’s largest LGBTI health organisation to assist in the reduction of stigma, social isolation, homophobia and discrimination in the workplace, thereby improving the mental health and wellbeing of LGBTI employees.
Your firm can take up direct membership with Pride in Diversity. If you would like to discuss membership options for your firm, please contact Ms Ashleigh Sternes at Pride in Diversity on 0438 714 505.
