          Dreaming of a Queered Workplace (APR 7TH 2022)

          Thursday, April 7th 2022
          2pm
          via Zoom

          Hosted by University of Regina Queer Initiative

          Presented by Jacq Brasseur (Ivy + Dean Consulting)

          Workplaces have pretty consistently been unsafe places for queer and trans people, and while EDI professionals have been slowly working to introduce 2SLGBTQ+ equity and inclusion practices into the corporate world, there remains so many opportunities for us to “queer” the workplace and how we manage the people within them. Jacq Brasseur has a decade-long history in leading queer and trans teams, and has spent even longer dreaming of what a truly queer workplace looks like and feels like for the people who work in it.
