Ep 42 - June Special "PRIDE"

41m | Jun 8, 2022

Let’s talk about it!

It is June everybody, and with Pride we march. This is the time of the year when a specific chapter of the minority representation book receives heightened (and deservedly so) attention: The LGBTQ+ community.

There is an infinite amount of wonderful content about the history and culture of this community, its persistent challenges despite all of us being people and sexuality truly not being the thing that makes a person interesting, as well as ways to be an inclusive member of society.

However, today on the HIGHER! Career Podcast, it is our ambition to lend a little wisdom to businesses, business owners, managers and peers on how to insure that you foster a work environment that is rich in representation, low in prejudice, free of bullying and built on merit and cultural enrichment through the candidates you decide to recruit.

This episode is derived from a presentation we did last year for the management team of FMI, a brilliant sales performance agency that invites us to shed some light on what is often an invisible malaise. Make no mistake, you can have a non-inclusive work environment without any of the more visible markers such as corridor gossip and active bullying.

Here are the external resources we mention throughout the episode:
