Training Overview

Happy International Pronouns Day! Help LGBTQ colleagues feel comfortable at work.

International Pronouns Day is October 16, 2024. According to the independent grassroots organizers of this annual occurrence, “International Pronouns Day seeks to make respecting, sharing, and educating about personal pronouns commonplace. Referring to people by the pronouns they determine for themselves is basic to human dignity. Being referred to by the wrong pronouns particularly affects transgender and gender nonconforming people.”


To conform to the latest Supreme Court ruling that LGBTQ individuals are protected from discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and support your team, you likely need to update your organization’s policies. For example, you must consider bathroom use based on gender, the use of pronouns in the workplace, and strategies to avoid discrimination lawsuits.
