Building Bridges

Pat Baillie, Associate Director of Training and Professional Development

by Pat Baillie | We just finished up our Building Bridges toward LGBT Diversity webinar series.  The course has lots of great material on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) cultural competency, the business case for LGBT employees and full workplace engagement, and action planning including how to be an ally.

We already heard back from Sharrin that she used the material with a friend of hers who was struggling with some workplace issues about being an LGBT employee.  She said “this really helped me help them to understand the issues and finer points of workplace equality.  I couldn’t believe I used the material this quickly!”.  The course is now in our archives in podcast and audio format.  Check out http://outandequal.org/university-archive . About half the class is continuing on to the Train the Trainer course so they can be certified to teach for 2 years on LGBT Diversity Leadership in their workplace.  The next live webinar starts on May 1 and you can register at http://outandequal.org/training-calendar.
