Training Overview

What are your pronouns? Ensure LGBTQ employees feel comfortable in your organization.

Last year, the Supreme Court determined that LGBTQ individuals are protected from discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. In February, the Equality Act passed the House, moving a step closer to further codifying protections for sexual orientation and gender identity. Despite this increase in legal support, the Human Rights Campaign reported that murders of transgender and nonbinary people hit an all-time high of at least 44 killings in 2020.

To conform to the current legal landscape and protect your team, you likely need to update your organization’s policies. You must consider bathroom use based on gender, the use of pronouns in the workplace, and strategies to avoid discrimination lawsuits.
