Training Overview

Are LGBTQ rights and pronouns covered in your policies? Use Pride Month to help your coworkers feel comfortable.

June is LGBTQ Pride Month, a celebration to honor the 1969 Stonewall uprising in Manhattan. It is an ideal time to discover your colleagues’ rights and preferred pronouns, a critical step in helping them feel comfortable at work year-round.

A Supreme Court ruling determined that LGBTQ individuals are protected from discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. To comply with the law, you may need to update your organization’s policies. You must consider bathroom use based on gender, pronouns used in the workplace, and strategies to avoid discrimination lawsuits. For example, a policy statement like, “When an employee is ill, he/she must notify his/her manager before 9:00 a.m.” is no longer appropriate because it excludes non-binary workers.
