WHO AM I? : THE LEADERSHIP PROGRAMME FOR LGBTQ+ EMPLOYEES.
Our tailored leadership programmes tackle distinct issues faced within the LGBTQ+ community - specifically designed to supplement and support in-house services, strategies and teams. We expertly facilitate challenging conversations relating to identity, trauma and shame in a safe, contained and confidential environment.
Who am I?
We use a tried-and-tested sequence of interactive workshops to empower individuals with the necessary tools and practices for managing their own well-being.
We support individuals at every level with becoming more authentic, impactful and compassionate leaders. When applied across an organisation, we know this contributes to a more inclusive, supportive and happier workplace.
Participants include senior execs from these highly regarded companies:

WHY DO WE NEED THIS?
LGBTQ+ well-being needs are unique.
This programme has been carefully informed by the lived and professional experience of our global team of experts, as well as the valuable insights we’ve collected from our diverse network of participants.
Our own extensive research indicates that pressures felt by many LGBTQ+ employees at work are often directly related to ongoing internal conflicts regarding their personal identity.
Did you know?
LGBTQ+ individuals are also three times more likely to experience anxiety and depression compared to the general population, with over 50% admitting they have suffered from mental health issues.
HOW DO WE HELP?
We facilitate tailored conversations.
Led by our expert facilitators, we tackle root issues in a safe and private setting. Participants tell us that these identity-based struggles would never normally be brought up ‘at work’, no matter how inclusive and open the company. However, these important conversations are key to moving forward.
These bespoke programmes are designed to support your wider D&I strategy, Mental Health and Leadership Development work by addressing the unique issues faced within the LGBTQ+ community.
HOW DO WE HELP?
A sequence of interactive workshops.
Identity is at the core of our programmes because we have learnt that it is the key to unlocking self-empowerment and authentic leadership.
We use a wide combination of workshops ranging from applied neuroscience teachings to developmental coaching, holistic practices and peer-to-peer learning opportunities.
We have different programme content, teams and dates dedicated to specific demographics, geographic locations and identities: GBTQ, LGBTQ and TQ+.
WHAT'S THE RESULT?
Employees feel empowered and supported.
Through our programme, participants establish action-orientated well-being goals and objectives; empowered with practical next steps, a self-care tool kit and support network to further build connection and resilience.
Employees who feel more confident in being their full-selves at work and become more intuitive with the lifestyle choices and business decisions they make. (AOM)
AND THE COMPANY BENEFITS?
A more inclusive work environment, for everyone.
This bespoke programme is available to support and enhance any existing strategy work and help you create a more supportive workplace.
By investing in the long-term well-being of minority group employees you normalise the discussion of heavily stigmatised issues, not just at work, but in society.
Employees who feel secure in their identity at work become more innovative, compassionate and impactful leaders, a benefit felt across the entire organisation. (AOM)
HOW MANY PARTICIPANTS ARE THERE?
There will be a maximum of fourteen participants on each programme.
Spaces are limited to one participant from each company to retain anonymity.
HOW ARE THE GROUPS DIVIDED?
Studies show that this work is most impactful with groups who have shared similar experiences. For this reason we have different programmes and dates dedicated to specific groups: GBTQ, LBTQ, TQ+. We will do what we can to provide you with equal opportunities for all your LGBTQ+ employees.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

WHAT IS THE CANCELLATION POLICY?
We can facilitate a participant exchange for another employee within the same organisation up to two weeks prior to the programme start date.
Safety is our main priority. For this reason we ask all participants to complete a pre-assessment, before we can confirm their place on the programme. These are standard questions, there to protect the safety of everyone involved. This information will only be shared on a ‘need to know’ basis and will be GDPR compliant. We will also be undertaking other necessary safety measures during and post.
