Experts on diversity and inclusion will speak on a variety of topics including Policy Language & LGBTQ Cultural Competency, Overcoming Bias, Making Your Workplace Reflect Your Values, Economic Advantage of LGBTQ Inclusion & Visibility, and Being Trans-Affirming. The growing list of speakers will be announced at a later date.
The Symposium is open to businesses of any size. Business owners and HR professionals from every industry will be able to gain important and valuable information from this conference. Any organization, whether just getting started or those with inclusive policies in place are encouraged to attend to learn more about opening their doors to gay and transgender clients and employees.
