First it was the Supreme Court ruling two years ago. And then President Biden’s first-day-in-office Executive Order made it even more clear: You are expected to enforce workplace discrimination protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity, as well as promote diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility (DEIA) with agency employees, customers and grantees.
This two-hour virtual training, led by Attorney at Law and FELTG President Deborah Hopkins, will provide a detailed overview of workplace discrimination laws, and dig into guidance and best practices on topics including gender stereotyping as sex discrimination, transgender protections, and sexual orientation – an important part of this administration’s focus on providing equity to traditionally underserved communities.
Deborah Hopkins will also explain how to addresses unconscious biases and microaggressions in the workplace, actions which, if left unchecked, can lead to discrimination or a hostile work environment for individuals in the LGTBQ community.
Attendees will learn how to:
- Comply with the relevant Biden Executive Orders.
- Ensure legal protections for transgender employees.
- Identify acts of microaggression against LGBTQ employees, as well as those influenced by implicit bias.
- Recognize and define harassment.
- Respond appropriately and effectively when you see a microaggression in the workplace.
This session will be held from 1:00 – 3:00pm ET.
This program meets the President’s mandate to provide training on diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility in the Federal workplace.
