Gender & sexual diversity: how to be an ally in the workplace

This e-learn takes us through sex, gender and sexuality while looking at why it’s so important to ask for people’s pronouns. Gender & Sexual Diversity will provide a deeper understanding to these important issues while digging into legislation, culture, some shocking statistics and how to be an ally and make a difference.


Our Gender & Sexual Diversity e-learn led to a 40% increase in confidence and scored 93% overall. Here’s what else people are saying about it:  

“I wish these resources were around when I was a teenager.”

“This was so awesome. The statistics were particularly shocking and powerful.”
“A kick up the bum to do more.”
