2018: AAAS Career Development Workshop: LGBTQ+ In Academia and The Workplace: Your Rights and The Law

Recognizing, understanding, and respecting the multiple identities of people in general is imperative to creating inclusive campus and workplaces climates that embrace diversity across all categories. Embracing the diverse viewpoints provided by varied life experiences enriches cultural competency, mutual understanding, and respect between and among identifiable groups. LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, gender-fluid, asexual, pansexual and more)-identified people are found in all cultural, ethnic, racial, socioeconomic, and professional groups, yet remain vulnerable to employment discrimination, social harassment, and stigma.
