Special Guest - Lucas O'Ryan - LGBTQ Educator! Hire Him to Educate your Company
   
Lucas is back on the show!  He was one of the most downloaded podcasts in Season 1!  Today Lucas brings us guidance on the dos and don't's on how to treat LGBTQ people in the workplace, what you can't do! What you can't ask!  How do we help all people feel included?  Lucas will talk about his personal experiences as a Transgender male but also guide us through hypothetical scenarios and how to handle them.
    
    Today's Podcast Perspective 

  • Cultivating a positive work environment for all people
  • When should you tell people you are Transgender?
  • Disclosure to the hiring manager or HR professional - when it is important
  • If there is no effect on you doing your job, then disclosing does not matter
  • Some may want to know how the company responds upfront, where-as many would keep it to themselves.
  • Personal situations will dictate how someone proceeds on disclosure
  • Recent law changes and Supreme Court decisions have encouraged the population to feel comfortable, but it does not change Bias'
  • Situations may arise where someone is forced to disclose (i.e., courtrooms)
  • Using outside resources to educate with a high degree of need for education
  • How are needs assessed by an educator - are there pre-existing reasons
  • Needs assessment 
  • Specific demographics have preconceived negative feelings toward LGBTQ
  • Stigmas within specific races and groups
  • Diversity Groups are discriminatory to other groups like LGBTQ
  • Breaking the ice with people that are not accepting
  • Bringing up faith to bridge the gap
  • Approaching a situation where you feel discriminated 
  • Engaging the employee or coworker
  • Companies need to check-in with your staff, do a survey, figure out where the barriers are
