Being a Better Ally to LGBTQ+ People of Colour

Free

We are delighted to be working with Stonewall, who take an empowerment approach to help individuals create more inclusive cultures. Workshops are designed to increase people’s confidence through a blend of education and discussion to help participants better understand the experiences of LGBTQ+ people.

This session will focus specifically on allyship to LGBTQ+ People of Colour, who are often faced with discrimination from both within and outside of the LGBTQ+ community, so it is an important step to educate all staff on the unique experiences people face and how this relates to other aspects of their identity. It also builds on general LGBTQ+ inclusion and allyship sessions, providing a more focused piece of work that colleagues may not often have the chance to be involved with.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand more about the experiences of LGBTQ+ People of Colour in the workplace and in everyday life
  • Discuss intersectionality and privilege, what they mean in practice and how they impact on people’s experiences at work
  • Develop ideas to step up as an ally to LGBTQ+ People of Colour and ensure your work is inclusive
