LGBT+ & INTERSECTIONALITY CONSULTANCY

Intersectionality and Inclusion high on your organisations agenda?

Looking for best practice for Intersectionality and LGBT+ Inclusion?

Maybe you are already on the list but you are sliding down the rankings and want to reinvigorate life into your existing LGBT+ strategy?

  • Ensure all your Diversity and Inclusion strands work together, not in silos
  • Design a long term LGBT+ Inclusion and Intersectionality strategy, bespoke for your organisations needs
  • Execute the LGBT+ Inclusion and Intersectionality strategy – including highly practical actions

  • Deliver this bespoke training programme and roll it out across your whole organisation
  • Review existing strategy and policies
  • Advise on key areas that need to be developed to ensure LGBT+ employees and customers feel safe, valued and you have products they want to buy!
  • Conduct research with your LGBT+ employees, customers and leadership team: interviews, observation of behaviour & provide objective feedback

12 MONTH INCLUSION PROGRAMME

Do all of your employees, customers and stakeholders feel confident to bring their whole self to work?

Do they feel included, valued and inspired to contribute to your organisations vision and goals?

Creating a fully inclusive working environment is down to everyone in your organisation. Not just you. Or the senior leaders.

And it isn't only for those with Protected Characteristics...


WHAT TO EXPECT

Research will be undertaken by Gina and her team to identify what is working and what isn’t. Surveys, observations, current documentation. It will all be reviewed and analysed.

Based on what we find... You'll be advised on key areas that need to be developed to create a workplace where everyone can bring ALL of who they are to work.

AND THEN... your whole organisation will undergo a programme of bespoke training, group and online support (including observations in the workplace) to begin to create that culture you dream of.

To end the programme, Gina and her team will measure the progress and impact of the 12 month Inclusion Programme. This includes 1. Re-surveying the employees, customers and the leadership team and presenting the results. 2. Observing key people in the business and providing critical feedback. 3. Gina will present a report to the Leadership Team, stating the progress, impact and next steps. 4. It will all be tied off with a workshop and celebration event for all participants in the Inclusion Programme.

Your employees, customers and leadership team will be surveyed and the responses will be analysed with a summary of findings provided.

Observations will be undertaken in the business to give valuable insights into your employee experience, leadership experience and customer experience.

Your current inclusion policies, procedures and documentation will be reviewed.

A bespoke training and support programme will be devised and written to roll out across your organisation, based on the findings of the surveys and observations.

A programme of bespoke training will be rolled out across the business. The focus will be to raise awareness, look at current practices and explore new ways of working/strategies to implement.

A combination of face-to-face support sessions delivered in-house and company wide access to an online support bank. This consists of weekly videos to introduce new strategies and actions to focus on week by week.

Check out the feedback from those that booked Gina to train their employees below!

"My Go To Person for all matters of LGBT inclusion at work! I had the pleasure of working with Gina twice this year when she delivered an authenticity talk to AstraZeneca's LGBT employee resource group and LGBT inclusion training to AstraZeneca's HR team. I am always impressed by the level of energy and enthusiasm that Gina brings into her work. She leads engaging and informative sessions. She is friendly and approachable and fosters a safe environment for thought provoking and non judgemental discussion. I would highly recommend working with Gina on any topic relating to LGBT inclusion and bringing your whole self to work!"
“The AstraZeneca group of companies believes people give their best and are at their most creative when they have a great place to work. We see inclusion & feeling valued as core to that experience. It’s important to me as an HR professional that my function role models inclusivity – after all we are the custodians of an employee’s experience with the company from the moment they think about AstraZeneca as a potential employer until the moment they leave us. Recent research reveals that as many as 83% of LGBT people from multiple organisations don’t feel they can be their true self at work. For us this is unacceptable in a business that believes inclusion is vital. Working with Gina to develop our knowledge, awareness and understanding equips our HR team with some new insights which we can use to influence our culture and practices to visibly demonstrate our commitment and aspiration to being more inclusive.”  
“The leadership team of the AstraZeneca LGBT+ employee resource group, recognises that the issues surrounding being LGBT+ in the workplace are complex and not easy to understand without reliable access to contemporary information. We also understand that non-LGBT+ individuals can feel nervous about asking questions for fear of saying the wrong thing. The core purpose of our group is to provide peer support, development opportunities and professional networking for our LGBT+ colleagues. However, we have evolved as a reference point for the business on LGBT+ inclusion, a role we take very seriously. We wanted to achieve a safe space for HR professionals to explore LGBT+ issues and have all questions answered without judgement. We decided to work with Gina after following her work on authenticity. Her collaborative approach to develop and deliver this workshop met our requirements with ease. We achieved a measured improvement in understanding amongst participants with feedback stating a desire to learn more. We are delighted that HR leadership has supported this series of workshops, as it demonstrates a clear commitment to do the right thing, embrace LGBT+ culture and be an inclusive employer of choice.”
"Gina - you are amazing! I think everyone left the session invigorated and I am already seeing posts this morning of how people are energising those who couldn't make it."
"I’m still buzzing from yesterday – what a great day! You were absolutely brilliant. I heard so many people say that your session was the highlight of their day yesterday so thank you for all your work putting it together and running it on the day. It was an absolutely fantastic session, Gina! It was a pleasure to host you and thank you for your inspiration. This is not the end of the conversation on authenticity, just the start."
"I had the pleasure of opening an awareness session for colleagues on being your authentic self at work, which Gina kindly delivered for us. The session was very insightful and engaging, and the feedback from delegates was really positive. It definitely gave us an appetite for more understanding on this topic, which is something we’re now planning to take forwards. I’d thoroughly recommend Gina."
"Gina recently hosted a session for us around being your authentic self in the workplace. Inclusion creates a culture where people can come to work & be their true self, feel celebrated & supported & perform better. Our colleagues who attended left feeling inspired & more engaged with the business & Gina kindly offered colleagues a follow up session free! The feedback we had from colleagues has been amazing & we are hoping to do more work with Gina in the future. Any business serious about Diversity & Inclusion would aim to create a culture where people can perform & be their personal best. This was a great session on the journey to achieving that."
"OMG!!!! Your session was just wonderful. I said that I thought you were genuinely amazing and a member of my team said, “that’s because she is amazingly genuine”!! I loved the layout, the time and energy that you put into the simplicity of the terminology and that you spoke to it with integrity and care. We are so thrilled to have had this opportunity and you will be happy to know that after our session, our team conversation stayed on topic. We had people share that within their own families they have gay and transgender family members and that they were so thankful to have been able to gain more insight."
"Inspiring and informative session! Thanks Gina! You have given us a lot to think about to ensure we keep moving the dial around inclusion."
"I wasn’t sure what to expect today but you ran a truly inspirational session Gina. Well done for keeping us to time as well - we are a passionate bunch in the HR department."
