LGBTQ+ safe culture: is reversing homophobia at the C-level the key to progress?

Expert studies suggest that more than half of LGBTQ+ employees still hide their identities in the workplace. Although tolerance and acceptance are becoming increasingly normalized, equal treatment and the number of opportunities is still far away from the standard. Despite significant progress in increasing LGBTQ+ visibility and acceptance, the general corporate culture around the world still has miles to go.

Queer today, gone tomorrow: How can ED&I professionals stay attuned to the lives, lived experiences and language of all LGBTQ+ communities?

This keynote explores both the nuances and the outright disagreements about the language of the LGBTQ+ crowds. From a younger generation who have embraced the word 'queer', to older who find it abhorrent. From an older White generation who might find the term 'elders' irksome, to those from Asian and Black families and groups who might find it a term of endearing respect.
