We offer regular training to our employees on preventing workplace discrimination. We encouraged employees to attend diversity related training in 2016 on the topics of LGBTQ awareness, Autism Spectrum Disorder awareness and disability awareness. A large portion of our management team also received Unconscious Bias training, a new course focused on identifying bias to ensure a fair employment process.
Queer Competency Training
For the first time, we partnered with QMUNITY to deliver an experiential workshop to help employees better understand diversity and become more inclusive. In addition to providing employees with a terminology booklet, we held two sessions in 2016 and invited a well-known LGBTQ advocate to present to our employees as part of Diversity Month. The feedback from this workshop has been very positive and will help us evolve and tailor the training program for 2017 and beyond.
