The landscape for gender inclusion is changing every day. It is projected that Millennials and Gen Z will make up 60% of the workforce by 2025 and are twice as likely to identify as LGBTQ and more likely to identify as gender fluid or non-binary than previous generations.
As our world becomes more visibly gender diverse, it is important to learn how to appropriately communicate with and about transgender and gender diverse people.
Join us in this session where we will explore gender diversity, pronouns, and language best practices for greater gender inclusion.
