– Perspectives on how to develop an inclusive and healthy work environment
About this webinar
There is a lack of compiled information and systematic reviews concerned with research on LGTBQI+ persons’ work environment. The Swedish agency for work environment expertise has published a systematic review on the topic in June 2022. In addition to this, a new handbook will be produced, aiming at supporting workplaces to develop an inclusive and healthy work environment for LGTBQ+-persons.
The webinar will give the participants an overview of the research done within the field and of key factors for developing an inclusive work environment for LGTBQI+ persons as well as an opportunity to learn more on the content of the new handbook. The webinar also aims at inspiring participants in how to develop a more inclusive work environment at their own workplaces.
The webinar will take place on the 18th of October at 9.00-12.00 am CET (Central European Time).
The webinar consists of two parts:
Part I: 2 hours of lecturing
Overview of research in the field from a Nordic perspective. Highlights from a literature review of 300 scientific articles in the field.
Part II: 1 hour of workshop
Participants reflect on how a more inclusive work environment can be developed within their own work settings. Selection of reflection exercises from a newly developed handbook on how an inclusive work environment can be developed from individual, group and organizational perspectives.
The webinar is free of charge
