A One Hour Interactive Video Webinar

Wednesday, May 17, 2017

3:00 PM EDT

You’re a manager, business leader or supportive colleague and there are still terms and categories you’re not quite sure of. What are some of the current workplace issues facing the LGBTQ community and what important realities should you know? And with growing discussions about transgender employees, are you confident in the language that you should use?

Veteran diversity professional Carole Copeland Thomas interviews Lillian Rivera in this fast paced interactive one-hour webinar designed to help clear the air about transgender employees. Lillian is the Director of Advocacy & Capacity Building at the Hetrick-Martin Institute.

Since its founding, Hetrick-Martin Institute has grown from a small, volunteer-led grass-roots advocacy organization into a leading professional provider of social support and programming for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning (LGBTQ) youth. HMI youth members, ranging in age from 13 to 24, come from over 300 zip codes throughout all of New York City and the surrounding metropolitan area. They are of all colors and sizes, come from all kinds of backgrounds, and their enthusiasm and creativity are boundless.

The conversation you won’t want to miss.
