DCA is delighted to offer members in Melbourne an opportunity to participate in an open presentation of our Out at Work Knowledge Program. This workshop is designed to assist key personnel to lead their workplaces to become more inclusive of LGBTIQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer and other terms that people identify with) employees.

Melbourne Knowledge Program #Out At Work From Prejudice to Pride

LGBTIQ+ inclusion is an important component of diversity and inclusion.

DCA's study, undertaken in 2018 with RMIT University, involving conversations we had with over 1600 LGBTIQ+ workers about their experiences, revealed how important it is for Australian organisations to continue to build on that work.

This interactive evidence-based workshop explores what it means to be out at work, and what organisations can do to make everyone feel included. This work is a valuable contribution to the evidence on how important genuine inclusion is for LGBTIQ+ people to stay safe, feel welcome and to contribute their best at work.

Designed for business leaders and managers as well as human resources experts, this program will also benefit all staff and be a great resource for internal LGBTIQ+ networks or pride groups.

Learning Objectives/Outcomes 

  • Discuss the positives and negatives of being Out At Work.
  • Explore a snapshot of LGBTIQ+ employees in Australia.
  • Identify recurring themes.
  • Research 6 Locks and Keys to creating cultures that enable being Out At Work.
