LGBTQ Etiquette for Legal Professionals

$ 79

Description

Whether you consider yourself liberal and open minded or awkward and confused when it comes to someone who identifies with the LGBTQ communities or sees themselves as gender fluid, you may feel uncomfortable with how to address certain situations with your co-workers, clients, or other parties in an action. You don’t want to be disrespectful but what do you say, how do you address someone, and even how do you act?

When trying to respect someone’s gender identify or sexual orientation, it is easy to overthink things.

In this webinar, Deirdre Pike, Senior Social Planner, Social Planning and Research Council of Hamilton, regular columnist for the Hamilton Spectator on many issues regarding inclusion and marginalized communities, and sought after speaker, will provide an overview of some of the issues you need to be aware of and help you understand how to avoid embarrassing situations.
