Fellow Travelers: Encouraging LGBTQ Self-Identification in the Workplace

Topics: Access to Justice, LGBT Leadership, LGBTQ, On-Demand Webinars

The Thomson Reuters Institute is proud to announce OutLaws 2020, an eight-part thought leadership webinar series devoted to advancing international LGBTQ2+ access to justice. Our fourth installment addresses the importance of corporate culture in fostering LGBTQ workplace self-identification.

More than ever, employers are empowering LGBTQ workers with supportive workplace policies and lifestyle benefits to influence an inclusive workplace for all. Companies encourage LGBTQ communal growth through employee resource groups (ERGs), support of external LGBTQ organizations, and recalibrated workplace policies once deemed unfriendly toward the queer community. Yet, despite such remarkable changes, many LGBTQ workers remain hesitant to openly identify as LGBTQ. Throughout this presentation, participants will collectively outline strategies to promote a safe and encouraging workplace where employees can feel free to be their authentic selves.
