The most significant and contemporary issues related to work place harassment and discrimination facing law enforcement and the fire service involves the acceptance of employees who “come out” or who are suspected of being gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, or transgender. Discrimination based on gender and sexual orientation continues to pose a significant threat of liability for public safety agencies.
Laws and policies alone will not prevent discrimination and harassment from happening in the work place. We know that the most effective way of changing the hearts and minds of offenders is with training, open discussion, and dialogue.
We can work with your agency or organization to design a speaking program or training program to meet the specific needs of your personnel. Our experts can help guide the change of a culture of homophobia to one that is accepting and supportive for LGBT employees.
