Being inclusive and affirming with gender identity and expression is an essential practice to build a culture of belonging. Our company's gender identity and expression class 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.
