Everything you ever wanted to know about being LGBT+ in Construction - but were afraid to ask.
Time & Location
25 Feb 2020, 18:00 – 19:20
Boiler Shop, 20 South Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 3PE, UK
About the Event
What does someone's sexual orientation have to do with their work life?
How can I start discussions about LGBT issues in my business?
What should I do if I say the wrong thing and what is the wrong thing to say?
How can I help support LGBT+ colleagues as an ally?
There are so many questions to be asked but potentially aren't because people don't want to offend or upset. However, without talking about LGBT+ issues, we are in danger of failing to support an estimated 7% of our colleagues.
Our panel members will speak about their lives as LGBT+ individuals living and working in the construction industry. Then we will open the floor to questions, anonymously if you would prefer.
