June is Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Awareness Month. The EQUAL! EBP (Employee Business Partner) provides activities to celebrate the contributions of the LGBT community and to raise awareness of the issues faced both within and outside the workplace that impact the lives of LGBT employees and employees with LGBT friends or family members.
EQUAL! encourages all employees to watch our pre-recorded events during June. Managers in supervisory positions are extremely encouraged to take the “Creating a Safe Workplace for LGBT Staff – A Class for Managers”.
