I have nothing against these people – some of my best friends are LGBTQ+

Sexual identity is one of the more controversial areas of diversity management. There is still much misunderstanding and harmful homophobia and transphobia. What are the practical issues that small, medium and large organisations face? How can professionals incorporate the identities of all employees in a harmonious workplace? How should we deal with bullying and harassment?

This session will explore some sensitive issues around sexual identity and gender reassignment. It will provide a legal and institutional context and suggest some policy and practical solutions for 21st century organisations.
