Anyone Can Be An Ally

Create a welcoming workplace for LGBTQ colleagues. Designed to educate and inspire allies to speak up for respect and inclusiveness. In this award-winning training program, noted educator and author on LGBT issues, Brian McNaught demonstrates how anyone can be an ally to create a respectful workplace that is inclusive of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender co-workers.

Anyone Can Be An Ally

What are the special concerns and needs for LGBTQ coworkers? When gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people don’t feel safe and valued at work, productivity goes down, and organizations fail in their efforts to attract and retain the best and brightest talent. Many organizations realize this, and have created clear policies on the issues. But in order for the climate to change, gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people need allies to speak up.

When employees don’t feel safe and valued at work, productivity goes down and organizations soon find themselves unable to attract the best and brightest. In order for the climate to change, everyone needs allies who are willing to speak up in the face of disrespectful comments and behaviors.

Productivity plummets and organizations fail in their efforts to attract and retain the best and brightest talent whenever gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people feel unsafe and undervalued.
Teach your employees to:

  • Put a face on the issues
  • Recognize the roles of allies
  • Learn what to say and when
  • Practice skills in being an ally

Dubbed "the godfather of gay sensitivity training" by the NY Times, Brian is considered the world's leading corporate diversity consultant dealing with gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender issues in the workplace. In this video, Brian offers what we need to know, say and do as allies - in a way that is compelling, informative and actionable. If you are looking for guidance about your employees' language choices, when to speak up, and how to foster inclusion as an authentic LGBT ally, Anyone Can Be An Ally (along with a little courage and practice) is all you need to make a difference.

Learning Objectives:

  • Put a face on the issues that confront LGBT people in the workplace
  • Recognize the important role of becoming and being an ally
  • Learn what to say and when, and how to get your words and "music" in sync
  • Practice skills in being an ally to those whom you may be uncomfortable with in the workplace

Training Goals:

  • To create a workplace in which everyone feels welcome
  • To build understanding of behaviors which are considered welcoming or unwelcoming
  • To allow people to practice skills in stepping forward to make all colleagues feel completely comfortable and able to give 100% of themselves to the job

The support materials for the facilitator and participants are designed for flexible use. They offers a lesson plan and prompts for the facilitator to conduct a discussion-oriented training session, as well as optional modules that use the Extra Features to expand and deepen the session.
