Virtual ProPride: Beyond Inclusion Towards Belonging

According to inclusion expert Verna Myers, “Diversity is being invited to the party; inclusion is being asked to dance.” In which case, belonging is choosing the playlist. This virtual panel discussion hosted by Pride at Work Canada will look at how we move from discussion about inclusion to creating a sense of belonging in our workplaces. This event will bring both business and community leaders to the table. Attendees will learn about how to create spaces of belonging for LGBTQ2+ employees where they don’t just feel tolerated, but are actively celebrated.

Virtual ProPride: Supporting 2SLGBTQIA+ Resurgence beyond Performative Allyship

Online Event

Rainbow logos, black squares, orange or pink t-shirts, or public diversity statements are ways many have tried to showcase their intention to be inclusive. However, on their own, these measures do nothing to achieve objectives related to reconciliation, diversity, equity and inclusion, solidarity or allyship. Part of the ProPride 2022, this virtual panel will explore some of the deeper understandings of what drives inequities for 2SLGBTQIA+ people in the workplace. We will showcase the results of ”Building the evidence base about economic, health, and social inequities faced by LGBTQ2S+ individuals in Canada” and explore examples of rainbow-washing and performative allyship.
