Navigating the professional world for an LGBTQIA+ person can be tough.
Being an ally can make all the difference. Here is the tip to show that you care.
Use inclusive language while interacting with all colleagues. Ask your LGBTQIA+ co-workers about what would make them feel safe at work.
Be mindful of the kinds of jokes and pop-culture references used in the workspace. Not everything that is mainstream is appropriate and inclusive.
Create opportunities for colleagues to share their pronouns and names with you. If they choose not to, remember that it's okay and it's their choice!
