Workshop Description

Given the national discourse around LGBTQ+ rights and the #MeToo movement, many nonprofits are exploring how they can create more inclusive environments and foster greater gender equity in the workplace. This interactive, fun workshop will explore issues around gender bias, gender identity and sexual orientation and how biases around these topics can impact organizational policies and practices.


Learning Objectives

Attendees will:

  • Examine personal and societal biases, conscious and unconscious, about gender and sexuality and what impact those biases have on our work
  • Explore existing challenges related to gender equity and LGBTQ+ inclusivity, and the resilience of these communities
  • Develop skills to discuss these topics with colleagues, partners, clients, etc.
  • Identify policies and practices that promote greater inclusion and equity within organizations


Target Audience

This training is designed for all nonprofit sector professionals interested in learning more about issues related to gender bias, gender identity, and sexual orientation. We’ll start with looking at ourselves – what biases and stereotypes do we hold? Then, we’ll think about how this impacts our work and the people we serve. Finally, we’ll explore organizational policies and practices. Our training style is interactive, fun, intersectional, and practical – including scenarios, videos, sharing personal experiences, and discussions.
