The National Business Initiative (NBI) recently concluded research on Understanding the Experiences of LGBTQI+ Employees in the Workplace. By understanding the experiences of LGBTQI+ employees, companies are in a better position to formulate transformative policies and create inclusive cultures which recognise inclusion as a human right.
Transformation efforts are multifaceted as they require systemic and behavioural changes. Some of the key findings reflected in the research Report emphasise the complexities of belonging in the workplace. Affirmation and inclusion extend to addressing stereotypes, microaggressions and biases which negatively affect how LGBTQI+ employees are able to navigate and succeed at work.
This discussion intends to unpack key findings from the NBI’s research Report, including understanding the importance of social behaviours and attitudes as well as exploring the transformation interventions needed to prioritise LGBTQI+ employees’ belonging in the workplace.
On behalf of the Social Transformation Team, we would like to invite you to join our online event, discussing The Experiences of LGBTQI+ Employees in the Workplace.
