Your Impact in Building an LGBTQ Inclusive Culture

4 min

Even small voices can
make a big impact.

Being vocal about inclusion at work can help:

1. Inspire trust

You never know who might feel alienated or hidden at work. But your open and enthusiastic advocacy will show your colleagues that you care about inclusion at work.

2. Open new conversations

By respectfully questioning norms, you can foster productive dialogues about inclusion on your team. It could be something as simple as, "have we ever considered gender-neutral language?"

3. Build awareness

The questions you ask may lead some of your colleagues to consider issues they haven't had to think much about before.

By bringing LGBTQ inclusion to the table, you can help make it everyone's issue.

Improving your team’s culture isn’t your obligation,

but it is an opportunity to make a change that lasts.
