Workshop - Open Introduction to LGBT allyship

February is LGBT History Month. This is an opportunity to reflect on your LGBT inclusion work. Use this session to take time and learn ways to step up as an active ally to the LGBT community.

Join us for a 2 hour interactive workshop at 10:30 on 03 February. You’ll gain the tools and confidence to be a better ally to LGBT people in your workplace.

What previous delegates thought

I found this incredibly helpful for my own personal development, let along my professional self. The panel was a really excellent way to bring folk in and begin engaging attendees to consider concepts that they maybe hadn't before.

Really useful content and thought provoking - helped to show the way that action can be taken

I thought the two presenters were excellent. They were very good at putting the group at ease and talking about a complex topic with decorum and sensibility.
