How To Create An LGBTQ-friendly Workplace
Over 8 million workers in the U.S. identify as LGBTQ+. According to a report by the UCLA School of Law, over 40% of LGBTQ+ workers (45.5%) reported experiencing unfair treatment at work, including being fired, not hired, or harassed because of their sexual orientation or gender identity at some point in their lives.
That’s nearly 4 million workers harassed in the U.S. alone, and a third of those end up quitting their jobs.
This is a cycle that needs to stop, and it starts with you, here… learning about some of the unique challenges facing LGBTQ+ in the workplace today. You might now know what to say or do, and that’s OK.
That’s what Steven Wakabayashi is here to help us with.
After leading creative teams at many notable brands and agencies including Apple, Google, and Walmart, Steven is now creating pathways for queer BIPOC creatives into the design industry through QTBIPOC Design, creating safe spaces for BIPOC communities within mindfulness through Mindful Sights, and designing equitable products and experiences for clients with his creative agency Stranger Creative. He is a creative director, changemaker, and founder of mission-driven organizations empowering historically marginalized communities.
