Here are the 5 key takeaways from the "Includability Short" with Saski on LGBTQ+ inclusion in the workplace:

Assess the Current Situation: Begin the inclusion journey by understanding what's currently happening within the workplace. Open communication channels, such as staff surveys or open-door policies, can help gauge the sentiments of employees regarding LGBTQ+ inclusion.

Prioritise Psychological Safety: It's crucial to create an environment where employees feel psychologically safe. This means fostering an environment where people can express their concerns without the fear of judgment and know they will be respected and listened to.

Continuous Training and Measurement: Diversity, equity, and inclusion training should be ongoing and not just a one-off session. It's also crucial to measure the impact of these training sessions and continually reassess to ensure progress.

Visibility and Policies: While policies might seem mundane, they are crucial for establishing a clear stance on inclusion. Visibility, on the other hand, is about making inclusion evident and apparent. This can be done by highlighting inclusivity on company websites, using pronouns in email signatures, and celebrating diversity throughout the year, not just during specific events like Pride.

The Power of Allyship: Allyship is about understanding the struggles of marginalised groups and using one's position or privilege to support and champion for change. This extends to setting up employee resource groups (ERGs) and promoting them as safe and supportive spaces within the organisation.

These key points emphasise the importance of continuous efforts, open communication, and the role of every individual in fostering an inclusive workplace.
