Come join us for the next Bi-Monthly Diversity and Inclusion SIG led by Kara Stafford and assisted by Ankit Shah and Seema Patel.
This month we are excited to announce another special program:
Let’s Get it Right: Best Practices for Pronouns in the Workplace
Want to understand how, where and when to use personal pronouns - in terms of our LGBTQ and Accessibility community? Curious what to do when you or someone else makes a mistake with personal pronouns?
We interact with different people with different experiences. It is our role as L & D and Talent Development professionals to set an example for our employees on DE&I subjects in the workspace. How we show up, interact and interpret microaggressions will all have an impact on the safety and comfort of learners and coworkers. Join, LGBTQIA+ advocate, Mathew Stuckey help you think about the LGBTQIA+ community and how we can support a more inclusive learning environment. Expect to learn a lot and ask questions!
Please watch this 3 min. video on Gender Identity and Pronouns before attending.
