LGBT. LGBTQ. LGBTQQIA. QUILTBAGS. Every day, it seems that there are more and more letters. What are some of the new labels? How are people using and experiencing sexual orientation and gender in 2021? And what do you need to know to be culturally competent in this area? Bring your questions, and an open mind.
We will start with defining common terms, explore simple steps to move your workplace to a more inclusive atmosphere, and dig into the results of creating a welcoming environment. No matter where you are in your understanding of the queer community and how it impacts workplace and everyday culture, this will be an open and safe space to ask questions and grow together.
- Understand the history of the LGBTQ+ acronym
- Become more cultural competent with gender and orientation based terms
- Learn about the challenges gender and sexuality diverse people face in the workplace
- Learn how to respectfully address pronouns
About the Instructor
Binary-Smashing Activist & Educator, Worldwide
Robyn Ochs is an educator, speaker, grassroots activist, and editor of Bi Women Quarterly and two anthologies: the 42-country collection Getting Bi: Voices of Bisexuals Around the World and RECOGNIZE: The Voices of Bisexual Men. An advocate for the rights of people of ALL orientations and genders to live safely, openly and with full access and opportunity, Robyn’s work focuses on increasing awareness and understanding of complex identities and mobilizing people to be powerful allies to one another within and across identities and social movements. Robyn was recently named by Teen Vogue as one of "9 Bisexual Women Who are Making History."
Among other things, she also crafted the definition of bisexuality that is used by many bi+ activists around the world: "I call myself bisexual because I acknowledge in myself the potential to be attracted — romantically and/or sexually — to people of more than one gender, not necessarily at the same time, in the same way, or to the same degree."
