FRWS: Building inclusive workplaces for 2SLGBTQIA+ students


Join us on a journey to explore how employers can foster inclusion for Two-Spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (2SLGBTQIA+) co-op students in the workplace. We will uncover the key factors influencing students’ experiences and share strategies for creating supportive environments, drawing from our research at the Work-Learn Institute. Additionally, gain insights from our employer partner, Ciena, on practical strategies for building inclusive workplaces for the 2SLGBTQIA+ community.

By attending this session, participants will:

1. Understand the challenges faced by 2SLGBTQIA+ co-op students at work.

2. Get tips to make workplaces more inclusive for the 2SLGBTQIA+ community.

3. Help create a work environment where everyone feels accepted and valued.

Together, let's uncover these insights and empower ourselves to create environments where everyone feels included and valued.

This is how I can help.
