Roughly half of people who identify as LGBTQ+ are still in the closet at work, and nearly two-thirds fear they won’t be promoted due to their sexual orientation. For teams that would like to demonstrate their commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and access having visible, vocal, and engaged allies is at the heart of the solution. But becoming an engaged and active ally isn’t always easy.

You’re invited to learn more about who allies are, why they’re needed, and how you can become (or help others become) an ally that is ready to take action. Sponsored by AdvaMed Advance and presented by Straight for Equality (a program of PFLAG National) you’ll have a chance to:

  • Quickly review and understand more about LGBTQ+ terminology (and how language evolves over time);
  • Learn about what the ally journey looks like and the common characteristics that allies have;
  • Examine some of the changes we’ve seen when it comes to LGBTQ+ acceptance in the workplace and how the current political climate is impacting LGBTQ+ employees worldwide;
  • Talk about the barriers that allies often encounter when it comes to being visible and vocal at work; and
  • Learn about straightforward, everyday actions that can help you overcome those barriers, express support, and create change in the workplace.

All participants will receive access to the guide to being a straight ally as a great takeaway resource!
