Heterosexism – the cultural expectation that everyone is, should be, or would prefer to be heterosexual - is the established norm of the workplace; a commonplace bias in American institutions. This bias gets played out in both overt and covert behaviors which in turn negatively impact the organizational culture. However, there have been organizational successes in diminishing the biases. There is an opportunity for your organization to create strategies to ensure LGBT inclusion in your workforce.

This webinar will address these questions and discuss workplace norms that can help your organization develop LGBT supportive policies and practices. It will also discuss international LGBT considerations and offer guidelines for transitioning of a transgender employee.
