The objective of this session is to understand the importance of LGBTQ+ inclusion at workplace.
The debate around the LGBTQ+ rights in India and the community is visible and gaining momentum as never before. the discussion around inclusion of LGBTQ+ employees at social setup is going on for a while, but inclusion at the workplace is still a new topic. Even if we think that we are inclusive, our inclusion might be excluding someone without our knowledge. This session (round table) is to discuss unconsious bias, what constitues inclusion and how to check our privilege and exclusionary behaviour at workplace - which would eventually help outside workplace as well.
