Queer + Trans-Inclusivity: For Entrepreneurs

June 15, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

This workshop will provide entrepreneurs with the language and tools they need to promote inclusivity for folks who identify under the LGBTQ2S umbrella, focusing specifically on queer, trans, and non-binary identities.

 

We will explore the language of gender, sex, and sexuality and their relationship to concepts such as intersectionality, privilege, and oppression. This workshop will prompt participants to ask “What am I not even noticing?” and to think about the ways in which they can promote allyship with LGBTQ2S individuals.

We will consider what it means to work from an anti-oppressive framework in order to create a more equitable business.

Over the course of 3 hours, the workshop leaders will provide participants with a breakdown of important concepts and terminology, and will guide participants through a series of explorative questions and group exercises that will help illuminate areas where their allyship could be improved.
