Making Your Business More LGBT+ Inclusive


Advance RSVP is available to Primary Entry badge types only. Walk-ups may be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

It is estimated that more than 12 million American adults identify as LGBT+, with millions more worldwide. Are you leaving money on the table by not considering them as employees, customers, and connections for your business? During this workshop, attendees will learn how to examine their current business spaces and practices through a lens of LGBT+ acceptance and inclusion. Together, we'll consider the terminology and layout of internal and public-facing paperwork, the layout of office spaces, and how advertising can reach the LGBT+ community. Plus, we'll dive into how to be inclusive of the LGBT+ community without alienating current clients and employees.
