Achieving Greater Workplace Equity for LGBTQ Employees
Stephanie V. Huckel
, Senior Global Program Manager, Diversity & Inclusion, IGT
Fifty-three percent of LGBTQ employees hide who they are at work. They question their workplace’s commitment to them while they simply desire an experience equitable to that of their heterosexual and cisgender peers.  This dialogue will provide participants with the tools necessary to communicate with and to LGBTQ employees in a way that sends the message “You are welcome here.”

Silence is a Statement: Understanding Race in the Workplace
Allison Manswell
, MBA, Certified Professional in Learning & Performance
There are many complicated reasons why we, as a nation and as individuals, often avoid discussing race at work. As a result, significant disparities in hiring, development, promotion and salary continue to exist along racial lines. Current events are demonstrating a strong need to address this topic openly and help move us forward as a nation and as individuals in our workplace.

The Importance of Inclusive Spaces and Symbolism in the Workplace
As part of Harvard's Presidential Task Force on Inclusion and Belonging, creating spaces that are inclusive, including language and symbolism, is recognized as an important step the University can take to pursue excellence on a foundation of inclusion. But what does that all mean? Moderated by Callie Crossley, WGBH host of Under the Radar, we'll hear from Harvard colleagues on the value and importance of assuring that spaces, symbols, and gatherings are reflective of, respectful of, and accessible to the diverse populations that exist across Harvard.
