Traliant, an innovator in online compliance training, announced the release of a new training course, LGBTQ+ Inclusion, to help organization’s foster more inclusive workplaces in which LGBTQ+ employees feel included and respected.
While progress has been made in raising awareness of the benefits of a more diverse and inclusive workplace, many LGBTQ+ employees experience negative interactions that, if left unchecked, can undermine diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives, affect engagement, team productivity and turnover, and lead to harassing and discriminatory behaviors.
“Our new LGBTQ+ Inclusion course supports an organization’s diversity, equity and inclusion program with practical guidance on how and why it’s important to treat everyone with respect, dignity and fairness and inspire all employees to bring their authentic selves to work,” said John Arendes, CEO of Traliant.
LGBTQ+ Inclusion (15-min.) features short video interviews, common questions and recent data about the workplace issues and challenges of LGBTQ+ employees. The course also covers LGBTQ+ terminology, how to avoid assumptions and stereotypes and different ways to support and be an ally to LGBTQ+ co-workers and colleagues.
