     As part of Pride month in June, CIPS South Yorkshire branch is hosting an LGBT+ Awareness Workshop.

    More than a third of LGBT+ staff (35 per cent) have hidden that they are LGBT+ at work for fear of discrimination. This friendly and informative introductory workshop will provide a valuable opportunity to engage and educate. This session will provide a better understanding of identities that fall within the “LGBT+ umbrella” and the distinct challenges that LGBT+ people face in the workplace.

    Learning Outcomes:

    • Understand LGBT+ identities and develop the confidence to articulate the need for LGBT visibility and inclusion in the workplace
    • Explore the history of the LGBT+ communities
    • Gain insight into the challenges faced by LGBT+ people at work and the effect this can have
    • Learn practical ways to become an ally of LGBT+ communities

    Note: this will be a workshop via Zoom ‘meeting’ and will NOT be recorded.
