It has never been more critical for organisations to be authentic about inclusiveness. Yet, many leaders still lack the self-awareness, language or emotional skills needed to engage effectively and empathetically with LGBTQ+ members of their business.
In this episode, we discuss the pressures and pitfalls facing organisations today as they move more consciously and assertively towards greater LGBTQ+ inclusion.
