Are you and your employees ready to have a meaningful dialogue about how to best recruit and retain an LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning) workforce? This training is a great opportunity for cisgender and heterosexual audiences to get an introduction to basic terminology in a safe space for questions.
