LGBTQ+ individuals still face significant barriers when it comes to being truly included in the workplace. By providing opportunities to explore LGBTQ+ specific issues and perspectives, we can create stronger cultures of belonging, improve the mental health of marginalised employees and develop the next generation of Queer Leaders.


The following is a list of our top ten training programmes to benefit LGBTQ+ people in the workplace, both through creating opportunities for growth amongst LGBTQ+ employees and by encouraging other employees to be better allies to their LGBTQ+ coworkers.


All of our events, training programmes and corporate solutions are fully bespoke, delivered by our global team of experts, and tailored to the needs of our clients. Don't be afraid to get in touch if you're looking for something not on this list!
