This workshop provides entrepreneurs with the language and tools they need to promote inclusivity for folks who identify as queer, trans, and non-binary. We explore the language of gender, sex, and sexuality and their relationship to concepts such as intersectionality, privilege, and oppression. This workshop prompts participants to ask, “what am I not even noticing?” and to think about the ways in which they can promote allyship. We consider what it means to work from an anti-oppressive framework in order to create a more equitable business. Over the course of 2 hours, the workshop leaders provide participants with a breakdown of important concepts and terminology, and guide participants through a series of explorative questions and group exercises that will help illuminate areas where their allyship could be improved.
