Town Calls are our monthly hour-long webinars held at 12:00 PM pacific time that feature guest speakers on current LGBT topics. We discuss the issues, policies, benefits, trends, and breaking news facing LGBT employees. This is an interactive learning experience with a Q&A session after each presentation. Town Calls are designed to help Employee/Business Resource Groups, Human Resources, executives, and busy professionals. We also serve private sector, federal, and non-profit employees. Town Calls are recorded so they can be used for training within your organization.

More and more companies are finding that to change the workplace climate for LGBT and ally employees it is necessary to be able to allow employees to identify on all the dimensions of diversity. One of the most significant trends in the workplace today is voluntary LGBT self-identification. In the 2016 Corporate Equality Index, 45% of the companies listed are using some form of self-ID through engagement/satisfaction surveys or confidential HR reporting. This month’s town call will look at how companies are adding this program and once in place, how to increase the outreach and impact on the workplace. We will discuss the challenges on what questions to ask, considerations for global efforts and the impact of the data once it’s collected.
