Regardless of where your organization is in its LGBTQ+ diversity, equity and inclusion efforts, one aspect may remain a major stumbling block to its success -- knowledge.

As important as DIEB policies are, a truly inclusive environment does not materialize from checked boxes or established Dos and Don’ts. Inclusion requires changing workplace culture and everyday behaviors. It’s knowledge that builds understanding, acceptance, fairness and cooperation. And knowledge in this decade may also necessitate thinking differently about society’s norms and expectations surrounding gender identity and gender expression.

In this talk our expert speaker shares the differences between gender identity and sexual orientation in a simplified manner that sheds light on most myths. She shares her system and language that get people comfortable with the uncomfortable for more open and inclusive conversations.

You will learn:

  • How to move beyond misconceptions and cultivate a culture of inclusiveness that drives improved business outcomes.
  • Why transgender and nonbinary inclusion are key components to talent acquisition, engagement and retention.
  • How gender-neutral language shapes the modern workplace landscape.
  • Four simple steps to create the inclusive work culture that millennials and Generation Z expect.


About Julie Tarney: Julie was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wis, and now lives in Brooklyn. She received her B.A. in Liberal Arts from the University of Wisconsin. After a successful career building the largest PR firm in her hometown city, working for clients like Coca-Cola, McDonald’s and Harley-Davidson, Julie applied her expertise to a leadership development consultancy. As a successful businesswoman, representing big corporations in diverse markets, Julie realized a common thread of confusion and misunderstandings regarding gender identity. Julie published My Son Wears Heels, an outspoken memoir where she shared what she learned about gender identity, gender expression and self-acceptance from her only child, Harry. Julie is aware that leaders often lack knowledge about the LGBTQ+ population and are therefore missing out on recruiting a large segment of their potential talent pool. Today she helps them better build their employer brand by creating trans-inclusive, welcoming and supportive workplaces.
