Gender and Sexuality Awareness: – Course Overview
The importance of understanding gender and sexuality
Despite the existence of policies and legislation designed to give people equal opportunities irrespective of their sexual orientation or gender identity, LGBTQ+ people unfortunately still face exclusion and discrimination in the workplace and wider society.

- The challenges faced by LGBTQ+ people in the workplace and society.
- The benefits of gender equality and diversity in the workplace, both on an individual and organisational level.
