ActionCOACH Arizona to Sponsor LGBT Workplace Inclusion Conference on January 17 Conference Offers Insight on Making Your Organization More Competitive and Inclusive in a Diverse Marketplace
PHOENIX, Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- In today's competitive business environment, it is critical that organizations make it a priority to be inclusive of a diverse population.
At ActionCOACH Arizona, we know that successful leaders today realize the value of celebrating and promoting employee diversity but may want to learn what they can do better to improve their efforts in this area.
To help promote that goal, ActionCOACH Arizona is proud to be a sponsor of the LGBT Workplace Inclusion Conference on January 17 at Phoenix College. This timely and insightful event—presented by the Human Rights Campaign and ONE Community—will provide attendees with the opportunity to hear from leaders of the HRC Corporate Equality Index and the HRC Municipal Equality Index, as well as representatives from companies and cities who have scored well on those rankings.
Ninty-one percent of the Fortune 500 include "sexual orientation" in their nondiscrimination policies and 61 percent include "gender identity." The majority of the total Fortune 500 — 67 percent — offer equivalent medical benefits between spouses and partners and 28 percent offer transgender-inclusive health care benefits. Unfortunately, Arizona based companies lag these numbers and many want to improve.
This is a chance for organizations to celebrate their success in this area and also learn ways in which they can improve. In addition, participants will learn:
- Best practices for making your business or organization fully inclusive of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender people.
- Tactics for improving your score on the HRC Corporate Equality Index or Municipal Equality Index.
- Ways to make your organization more competitive in the global economy.
This is a complimentary conference, and we invite all interested leaders from area businesses and organizations to join us!
