Read Full Transcript

To be more inclusive, the LBGTQ+ potential hires and employees, it only takes a few steps. Number one, when you're interviewing, refer to the other person, the family, as husband, wife or spouse, regardless of gender. That becomes a signal of inclusiveness. Number two is proactively start correcting the language of your team, so that they take away some of the jokes or the wisecracks and the comments that are heteronormative, rather than being inclusive. Number three is be open to being corrected. You're going to make mistakes, too. I know I have, and it's wonderful when someone trusts me enough to correct me. And number four, be inclusive of the spouse and the children in their family in order to ensure that at company functions, everyone feels welcome. Very simple stuff. Hope you find this helpful. Follow me, please.
