“After this training, our group felt prepared to engage in educated, respectful conversations about LGBTQ issues, and to help develop workplace policies that treat all employees with fairness and dignity.”

Our Approach

Strategic Partnership

Our approach to inclusivity training is based on methods that promote strategic partnership with a focus on organizational communication and tolerance. We tailor our curriculum to meet the needs of your industry, organization, and employees—with the goal of teaching people to see and treat each other with dignity and respect.

Comprehensive Approach

Creating workplaces that are free from discrimination and harassment takes a hands-on approach that goes beyond leadership and management. All team members, not just managers, are integral to creating an inclusive organization. Our approach provides employees with practical communication tools and empowers them to make positive changes in the organizational culture.

Valuable Guidance

In order to motivate all levels of an organization to improve inclusivity, we educate employees on why LGBTQ inclusiveness matters to the company, customers, teams, and individual employees, for their day-to-day job and career advancement. Ultimately, we make the “business case” for the decision-makers and the “value case” for the team members.

Inclusive workplaces reduce the estimated $64 billion annual attrition cost associated with the nearly two million American workers who leave their jobs each year due to unfairness and discrimination.

Impact

Hear what clients have to say about their experience working with The Center's RANGE Consulting program:

“Recently, I have had the pleasure of collaborating with The Center to educate our office staff on LGBTQ awareness. This allowed us to further our business model while increasing our knowledge on how to best serve our transgender clients and caregivers. The speaker was professional, cool under pressure, and communicated in a way in which everyone could understand. As a subject matter expert, The Center's trainers are a veritable resource of this niche field in human resources and employment law, and are playing a significant role in how we do business, train our staff, and care for our clients.”

—LOUIE LUGO, SHRM-SCP, Senior Recruiter & Human Resources Business Partner for FirstLight HomeCare of Denver West

“The presentations were thought provoking and informative. The speaker's passion for the topics was obvious. She established a safe environment for open discussion, and it felt good to know that so many in our organization will leave these trainings with a heightened awareness and knowledge of inclusive terminology, and better ways to practice inclusive care. Thank you!”

—AMELIA JANES, BSN, RN, Public Health Nurse HIV/STI Prevention Program for the Tri-County Health Department
