LGBTQI+ Gender Diversity Training
Available from Diversity Builder, Inc.
This course is available online, onsite, or via live trainer webinar. The course helps employees better understand gender and how it is expansive. Employees will learn the difference between sex and gender, a foundation of gender identity and gender expression concepts and how the intersectionality of one's gender identity and expression is an important component of who we are and intersectionality. The course will include practical application and micro actions each employee and leader can take to be inclusive with regard to gender.
The Importance of Gender
Gender is an important part of identity. It can impact the expectations we have for ourselves and others, the opportunities available to us, and the experiences we engage in.
A respectful workplace where this important part of identity can be fully shared allows for workers and clients to live more authentically. As allies or those who are in marginalized gender groups, we all have an opportunity to build a space that can hold all of our complexities. Research shows that employees that feel free to be their authentic selves are happier, more satisfied, more productive, and do our best work.
