CLCQ are pleased to team up with Minus 18 to deliver a mini-program of two free 90 minute webinars to assist your community legal centre to create a safe and inclusive work environment for LGTBQIA+ staff, volunteers and clients. Workplaces have higher employee engagement and productivity when LGTBQIA+ people feel welcome and supported!
Whether it’s to inspire your team with the basics, refresh previous learnings, or deep dive into new ones – the knowledgeable trainers from Minus 18 are here to guide you to create LGTBQIA+ inclusion that makes your workplace better for everyone. Minus 18 engage with a light-hearted and interactive approach, with all content backed by up the latest research and best practice.
Following attendance at these sessions, participants will receive a professional development certificate from Minus 18 and your team will also receive an LGTBQIA+ Inclusion Action Kit to support ongoing change.
