NEW COURSE: Sexual orientation

This course replaces the old version of Sexual orientation.

At a time where employers increasingly understand the value of individuals bringing their whole selves to work, ensuring that people of all sexual minorities feel comfortable and uninhibited in the workplace is an important part of the success of a team or an organisation, and more importantly can impact the mental well-being of its sexual minority employees. This course will look at how sexual orientation impacts on a person’s experience of the workplace, how to recognise and deal with the different and often nuanced forms of discrimination, the impact they have on an individual’s mental well-being and on their performance, and key strategies to support sexual minorities to create an inclusive and positive working environment where people feel safe to be themselves. 

Sexual orientation can be a key aspect of a person’s identity. It can determine not only who someone might be attracted to and be in a relationship with, but also how they see and engage with the world, and how the world engages with them. Although there have been many changes in the law and in society’s attitude towards sexual minorities, such as legalising same-sex marriage, and the recognition of same-sex parents, there are still many barriers and challenges that sexual minorities face. Acts of homophobia and biphobia are common, and indeed being gay, lesbian or bisexual is still illegal in many parts of the world.


Pride Month: Supporting sexual minority employees in the workplace

Organisations have increasingly shown their commitment to sexual minority employees and customers with inclusive marketing and rainbow advertising.

But what concrete steps should organisations take to support their sexual minority staff, and how can businesses celebrate Pride when there are still so many challenges that LGBTQ+ individuals face worldwide?

We hear from experts in the field and draw on lived experience interviews to look at the challenges that sexual minorities encounter in the workplace and what organisations can do to enable them to feel comfortable being themselves at work.

Our panel is made up of LGBTQ+ individuals and allies, along with interviews from several LGBTQ+ leaders and speakers.

This webinar about supporting sexual minorities covers:

– Why sexual orientation is important to a person’s identity
– The stereotypes that sexual minority individuals face in the workplace
– The challenges and rewards of being out at work
– Policies and procedures to support sexual minorities
– Steps for creating a workplace culture where people can bring their whole selves to work
– What is Pride, and why does it matter?

NEW: Sexual Orientation – Lived Experience Videos

These eight lived experience videos serve as a reminder of the fact that people from sexual minorities are forced to navigate other people’s attitudes to their sexual identity, with all the stereotypes and assumptions that this often entails. The negative reactions they encounter can have a profound impact on their mental well-being, and their relationships with family members, friends and colleagues. The interviews consider what it means to be from a sexual minority from a variety of angles, in order that we can better understand the emotional and social difficulties that they face on a day-to-day basis.
