Diversity Awareness Partnership

D&I Seminar Series

Diversity & Inclusion are constantly evolving landscapes. We will always have more to learn, more to share, more to explore, and more to innovate around, as our shared spaces grow in the direction of liberation for all marginalized people. DAP’s D&I Seminar Series aims to be a part of that collective learning; the program consists of 1.5-hour educational sessions that focus on different aspects of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace. Together we can tackle nuanced topics with humility and excitement – topics that have a huge impact on our everyday lived experiences.

D&I Seminar 4: “Thinking Outside of Binaries: LGBTQIA+ Allyship to Transform Workplaces & Perspectives” will guide participants through an exploration of multiple LGBTQIA+ identities as spectrums. We will expand our collective understanding of gender identity, gender expression, sexual and romantic orientation, and more. This framework will fuel discussion around taking concrete action as community members and allies.

Objectives:

  • Learn ways to include the LGBTQIA+ community when developing systemic changes in your workplace
  • Understand the importance of the spectrum that gender identity and sexual orientation exist on
  • Explore specific actions your organization can take to create an LGBTQIA+ inclusive culture
