Workplaces have made progress towards GLBT equality yet GLBT workers still go to work every day with fear that they might lose their jobs because of who they love and who they are. There is no federal law protecting the GLB community from workplace discrimination and harassment. There is confusion among organizations as to whether the federal civil rights law Title VII protects gay, lesbian, and bisexual (GLB) employees.The EEOC and several courts clearly have stated that GLB employees are protected by Title VII however other courts have disagreed. Recently, the EEOC has filed its first two sexual orientation lawsuits. These two cases demonstrate the EEOC’s commitment to moving forward to protect GLB employees from discrimination under Title VII.

Why Should You Attend:

•     How does your business go about recruiting the LGBT community?
•     Do any of your advertising and marketing practices target LGBT consumers?
•     Do you know how to assist a transgendered employee in their gender transition process at work?
•     And what about those bathrooms—how are you addressing this issue?

Heterosexism – the cultural expectation that everyone is, should be, or would prefer to be heterosexual - is the established norm of the workplace; a commonplace bias in American institutions. This bias gets played out in both overt and covert behaviors which in turn negatively impact the organizational culture. However, there have been organizational successes in diminishing the biases. There is an opportunity for your organization to create strategies to ensure LGBT inclusion in your workforce.
