June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month, a celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer communities around the world. Thousands of parades, fairs, and other gatherings happen around the world every June to commemorate the Stonewall Bar uprising, which occurred in June 1969, representing, for many, the beginning of the LGBTQ Rights Movement. Many businesses and other institutions offer LGBTQ Pride Month inclusion trainings to their employees and other stakeholders to honor this history, and to remind employees of the laws, policies, & best practices all employees should implement to be most inclusive & respectful of their colleagues and clients.
In addition to offering LGBTQ 101 trainings, Gender & Pronoun 101 trainings, and Advanced LGBTQ Best Practices (201) trainings during Pride Month, I have offered LGBTQ inclusion training sessions that cover how to be a respectful ally at pride celebrations, LGBTQ history trainings, and facilitated discussions about how to celebrate LGBTQ Pride Month in the workplace. These sessions are great opportunities for LGBTQ and straight and/or cisgender employees alike to raise their awareness about about LGBTQ gatherings in their area and learn about the history and importance of LGBTQ pride celebrations.
I am currently scheduling Pride Month trainings (click here to see some examples) for June 2022–and my calendar fills up fast!

Trainings can be in-person or virtual–whatever works best for your organization.
