    • The business case and rationale for supporting LGBT diversity
    • The many areas of LGBT inclusiveness that companies can be active in; Details of the “20 steps (programs) to LGBT workplace inclusion” 
    • A deeper dive into the current area of transgender diversity – what is transgenderism and what HR policies and procedures are need to support these transgender employees
    • How to interact in a respectful manner with LGBT people… terms and words to use, etc.  “The five things to never say to LGBT people”
