Fostering LGBTQ2S Inclusive Work Environments

It is an interactive workshop focused on raising awareness and building knowledge of LGBTQ2S communities and the barriers to full participation that LGBTQ2S people often face. As a participant, you will learn to identify respectful and affirming language as well as to challenge homophobic and transphobic language and behaviour. You will build knowledge of how the Ontario Human Rights Code protects people from discrimination based on gender identity, gender expression, sex and sexual orientation. You will discuss internalized, interpersonal, cultural and systemic discrimination, some of the common barriers faced by LGBTQ2S people, the impacts of such discrimination and barriers to a person’s or community’s well-being and mental health, as well as practice effective responses in providing affirming services and programs. Finally, you’ll work collaboratively to share ideas and strategies for short-term and longer-term action back in the workplace, making direct use of Creating Authentic Spaces resources and tools. Please note that there is a particular emphasis placed on the experiences of trans and gender diverse communities in this workshop.
