Workshop - Creating a Bi Inclusive Organisation

Bi Visibility Day is an important calendar date in September. It is a great opportunity to celebrate your bi colleagues and reflect on your inclusion practices.

We know that bi people experience higher levels of discrimination than their gay and lesbian colleagues. When creating LGBT inclusive workplaces, it's important to ensure that bi people aren't left behind. You’ll leave the session better equipped to be a positive and active ally. We will explore bi identities and experiences, and practical steps towards bi inclusion.

Join us on Thursday 23 September from 13:30-15:30 for a 2-hour interactive workshop.

What will I learn?

By attending this session you will:

  • Understand bi identities and develop the confidence to articulate the need for bi visibility and inclusion in the workplace
  • Gain insight into the challenges faced by bi people at work and the effect they can have
  • Explore practical ways to take steps to make your existing work bi inclusive while engaging in bi-specific work
Who can attend?
This session is perfect for:
  • All staff, especially useful for those working on bi inclusion initiatives
  • Members or leaders of an LGBTQ+ Network Group
