About

Candid is proud to provide live, online trainings that speak to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) for nonprofits. If you were unable to participate in this webinar, you can access the webinar recording here. You might also want to check our eBooks collection on DEI.


June may be Pride Month, but supporting your Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer/Questioning Plus (LGBTQ+) employees and partners should be a year-round effort. This webinar will provide a 101 overview of LGBTQ+ identities and the discrimination and exclusion experienced by the LGBTQ+ community. Participants will walk away with resources and action steps for creating a more inclusive work environment and an increased ability to serve the LGBTQ+ community. 

We’ll discuss the LGBTQ+ legal landscape and lack of protections, an explanation of the difference between sexual orientation and gender identity (transgender and non-binary), and easy-to-implement policies and practices for a more culturally competent and inclusive organization.  

Thanks to the generous support of Borealis Philanthropy, Candid is offering this live online training series to further a variety of conversations on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the social sector. This specific webinar series is free and open to the public. 

You can access additional trainings in this series here. You might also want to check our eBooks collection on DEI.
