How Can LGBTQIA+ People Bring Their Full Selves to Work

Many members of the LGBTQIA+ community have had a time in their career where they have not brought their full authentic self to the office out of fear of being alienated, even when, on the surface, the company is pro-LGBTQIA+. Bringing your authentic self to work only becomes more complicated as the very concept of the workplace continues to evolve.

On Wednesday, August 25th, PowerToFly is thrilled that Dr. Van Bailey will join us to take a virtual deep dive into exactly this topic: How can LGBTQIA+ employees embrace authenticity at work?
