Fostering an Authentic LGBTQ2+ Inclusion Strategy for Your Business: Legal & Organizational Considerations

CPD Information: 1 Hour for HRPA and CHRP Members, 1 EDI Professionalism Hour for Lawyers

Lorenzo Lisi

External Speaker:
Colin Druhan - Executive Director, Pride at Work Canada / Fierté au travail Canada


As in-person Pride gatherings have been cancelled or postponed due to pandemic-related public health concerns, LGBT2Q+ inclusion celebrations will still proceed across Canada in digital formats.

Developing an inclusion strategy for your workplace is a daunting task. There may be surveys, checklists and metrics which can create a mechanical process and leave you feeling detached from the goal of fostering security for all employees. Businesses that are dedicated to their LGBT2Q+ employees and clients often strive to showcase how authentic and inclusive their culture is. What are some strategies employers can use to keep their humanity visible, meet their legal obligations to fight employee discrimination issues and ensure their business is inclusive?

Join Pride At Work Canada Executive Director, Colin Druhan, and Aird & Berlis Workplace Law Group Leader, Lorenzo Lisi, as they discuss ways to move the needle on your business' LGBTQ2+ inclusion strategy.

Topics include:

Common pitfalls in corporate LGBTQ2+ inclusion strategies

Setting clear goals to ensure your diversity & inclusion efforts are effective and their outcomes measurable

Legally defining discrimination in the workplace as related to LGBTQ2+ employees

How family status accommodation applies to LGBTQ2+ employees
