On a beige background, the text reads,”Beyond Rainbow-Washing. How to create an inclusive, equitable 2SLGBTQIA+ organization year-round. October 12, 5:30 - 7 PM EST, Zoom Webinar”. There are photos of speakers, along with their designations that read,”Brent Artemchuk (he/him), Manager, Change Management, Corporate Evolution & Change Enablement, TD Bank. Hanna Haddad (he/him), Business Development Coordinator, Pride at Work Canada/Fierté au travail Canada. Luis Augusto Nobre (he/him), Senior Communications Coordinator, Pride at Work Canada/Fierté au travail Canada." On the top right is a logo of PIC and a teal logo of IABC.

Thursday, October 12, 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. via Zoom 

This joint PIC-IABC/Toronto event is for anyone who wants to take real action to support the 2SLGBTQIA+ communities for International Coming Out Day (October 11), Pride Month and beyond. Raising a rainbow flag during Pride Month is not enough.

Luis Augusto Nobre (he/him), Senior Communications Coordinator, and Hanna Haddad (he/him), Business Development Coordinator, both from Pride at Work Canada / Fierté au travail Canada, will share research, business cases and best practices. You’ll learn practical strategies for authentic, sustainable support for inclusion on the basis of gender and sexual diversity, including:

  • • Building processes to support your clients and organizations
  • • Creating marketing and communications initiatives for greater impact
  • • Going beyond pronouns
  • • Rooting out systemic barriers related to privilege
  • • Building strong internal teams

Our Zoom format will allow time for Q&A and discussion, but if you have specific questions you’d like addressed, please send them ahead of time to toronto-sig@iabc.to.

If the timing doesn’t work, register anyway. You’ll get access to the recording of this important discussion that will help your organizations or clients make solid plans rooted in consistent, year-round support of the 2SLGTBQIA+ communities.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to take action to improve from Pride to Pride!
