LGBT+ speakers play an important role in the fight for workplace diversity and inclusion. Often booked to conduct private corporate workshops, their expert insight into sexuality teaches audiences the correct terms to use, phrases to avoid and why it is important to support the LGBTQ+ community.
For a workplace to thrive, every employee must feel safe and respected by their colleagues. However, with 46% of LGBT+ workers reporting that they are closeted at work, a lack of inclusion can cause division within a team. LGBT+ speakers provide valuable insight into the importance of cultivating an inclusive environment where lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender staff feel represented.
What sets these speakers apart is their authenticity, they are driven by their own experiences and a passion for making the world a better place.
With LGBT History Month taking place in February and Pride Month in June, there are many opportunities to campaign for LGBT equality in the workplace. Such events are the perfect chance to educate your employees, to increase understanding of all identities and experiences.
LGBTQ+ and straight attendees alike greatly benefit from one of these inspiring speakers, as their stories of self-discovery serve to empower all in attendance. Inspiring, authentic and incredibly passionate about their message, they suit events of all shapes and sizes, as representatives of the community.
