Whats the sitch?!

Equality Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) has undoubtedly become a hot topic at work. However still, this work is sometimes mistaken as voluntary or considered as a passing trend by some businesses. This isn’t the case! More and more studies are finding that ED&I creates a happier workforce, drives innovation, and reduced staff turnover. We’ve found that EDI strategies that focus on specific identities and address the individual needs of those groups of people work best. That’s why we’ve developed a huge number of training packages centring around LGBTQ+ Inclusion. Check out McKinesy & Company’s blog “LGBTQ+ Inclusion in the Workplace” to read more about LGBTQ+ specific workplace issues.

Why it matters

Every person wants to work in a workplace that actively considers and creates an inclusive workplace, and in the same breath, so many people are worried about talking to LGBTQ+ people incase they say the wrong thing. We built this session after realising that consistently evolving language is a barrier to honest & authentic communication.


Most days we hear people express frustration or confusion on the use of pronouns. We also hear the often misconception that we want “100’s of genders”. Both come from a misconception around language used to describe identity variants which we’ll address in this course!
