Enhancing Workplaces to Attract & Retain Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Employees

  • Capital Region Chamber 5 Computer Drive South Albany, NY, 12205 United States (map)

Nearly 1 in 10 LGBT employees have left a job because the work environment was unwelcoming. This contributes to costly turnover, lost talent, damaged reputations, and an impact on the bottom line.

This interactive training is designed to assist leadership, management, and HR professionals in creating businesses and organizations that support the needs of LGBT employees and job-seekers. Whether your agency has struggled with issues of workplace discrimination or wants to prevent litigation, whether you have a transgender employee seeking support or you want to proactively prepare for new LGBT hires – this training will increase your understanding of the many barriers LGBT employees face and how to address them.

In this training you will learn:

  • Tools for interpersonal communication with and about LGBT employee’s colleagues

  • Promising practices for HR, recruitment, facilities, and policies

  • Guidelines for supporting transgender employees transitioning in the workplace
