Queer Perspectives: Bodily Autonomy.

Updated: Jul 5, 2023

Our panellists discuss how they see bodily autonomy impacting the future of inclusion in the workplace.

In this panel discussion, we explored what organisations can do to champion bodily autonomy and what support and resources are needed to meaningfully carry this out.

Overview of Session:

Bodily autonomy is an umbrella term which describes the freedoms and informed choices that each person has the right to make about and for their body at any time. For many LGBTQ+ people, currently, it not only speaks to the freedom to explore and express gender in a way that affirms who they are, or the freedom to choose how to form families, it also considers freedom from all forms of state repression, to move within and across borders, as well as the freedom to access necessary care and services to sustain their wellbeing. How these freedoms are perceived and understood today is critical in (re)defining inclusive behaviour and policies that make our workplaces safer, thriving spaces, for LGBTQ+ employees locally and globally.

Watch this session to...

- Understand bodily autonomy and how to support the freedoms of others

- Contextualise global legal restrictions on gender identity and sexual orientation

- Reflect on the impact of these issues on LGBTQ+ mental health

- Apply an intersectional lens in building safer workplaces for LGBTQ+ employees

- Learn to model inclusive behaviour and share tools for colleagues to do the same

- Use the safe space to discuss, learn and get curious
