So you’ve started creating and embedding LGBTQ+ inclusion within your workplace and it’s culture, the policies and processes are in place but you’re not seeing results, it might be that your next port of call is LGBTQ+ Allyship training. There’s a tonne of things you can do to create LGBTQ+ inclusive cultures but if the people within your organisation aren’t moving in the same direction then it’s unlikely that you’ll be getting anywhere fast.

In their blog post ‘The case for allyship at work‘ Meta (the owners of Facebook, Instagram, and Whatsapp) state that ‘33% of employees who perceive bias feel alienated at work, something that’s certain to damage morale’. Having active and powerful allies within your workplace is a sure fire way to reduce that feeling of alienation & even eliminate the bias in the first place.

So why does it matter?

Being LGBTQ+ at work can at times feel isolating, it can also be really difficult to understand who the right person to talk to is. This training will empower both LGBTQ+ and non-LGBTQ+ people to step up as allies, this includes advocating and supporting other colleagues, and handling challenging conversations.

Allies at work do more than just wear a pride flag, they’ll create a truly inclusive workplace which will support your LGBTQ+ colleagues to feel supported, content, included, and valued. This can lead to higher staff retention and also better customer facing work.
