Our definition and expectations of gender are expanding. The boundaries of acceptable workplace behavior are changing. Does your team know the new “rules”? A comment or a touch may be perceived as innocent by one - but as harassment by another. An offhanded remark towards a transgender or non-binary associate may lead to costly harassment complaints.

This talk was created to address the concerns of all sides of the #MeToo movement. Bernadette will address LGBTQ inclusivity, unconscious bias, and demystify common assumptions and shifting boundaries in the workplace. She delivers humorous, relatable messages with tangible action steps.

Learning Objectives:
Objective 1: Strategies for maintaining professional boundaries to minimize the risk of blurred lines leading to harassment accusations

Objective 2: Learn about the diversity of gender, including best practices in interacting with transgender and non-binary associates

Objective 3: How to recover from accidentally offending someone and how to speak up if you witness it

Objective 4: The ARC Method℠ of communication, used to gain clarity in any situation
