Virtual Summit #1: I'm Not LGBT...Not That There's Anything Wrong with That


Meeting Description:

Tuesday, Jan 21, 2014 - 12 pm Pacific Time
1 pm Mountain | 2 pm Central | 3 pm Eastern

(Corrected Description) Straight allies in the workplace are some of the strongest advocates for equality we have. However, being one of these unexpected, and often less immediately visible messengers of why equality is an issue for everyone, is not without its own challenges. Find out how to effectively communicate why you're an ally (and why saying it matters), get the language to articulate the ally angle on the business case for equality and ERG involvement, and learn how to turn awkward experiences (like when a colleague tells a gay joke) into teaching moments that boost inclusion at work. Whether you're a new or seasoned ally or an LGBT person looking for ways to help empower your allies, we've got answers.
