Creating an open and inclusive work environment that attracts and retains diverse talent has never been more important to remain competitive in the market. 2SLGBTQ+ people working in North America still experience many challenges and barriers to enter and advance their careers in the tech industry.
Despite progress being made toward wholly inclusive and diverse workplace environments, there is more to be done regarding stigmatization, higher risk of harassment, intersectionality, and lack of visibility, especially for Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming people.
The overall goal of this webinar is to increase awareness and understanding of the challenges and barriers facing members of the 2SLGBTQ+ communities in the workplace, and to provide practical steps for creating more inclusive and supportive work environments.
