Training for Companies & Employers

We know that creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture at work is vital to many businesses, not just because it’s right but also because it makes business sense!

More open, diverse, and equal workplaces have happier and more productive teams leading to greater profits.

With research telling us that 62% of ‘out’ graduates go back into the closet when they take up their first job, companies have more to do to create open and inclusive cultures. Our training and workshops can help you to achieve these objectives.

Why choose BeLonG To?

Our LGBTI+ training experience goes back over two decades, and we’ve written the book on growing up LGBTI+ in Ireland. Our professional staff team has contributed to the significant research studies in LGBTI+ identity in Ireland. All of our training is created in partnership with LGBTI+ people, ensuring it reflects their lived reality.

Our workshops use a mix of formal and non-formal educational techniques ensuring the content is accessible to the broadest possible audience. Active participation is the hallmark of our training philosophy, and participants are engaged in an interactive learning session where questions, storytelling, and engagement are encouraged.

By choosing the leading Charity working for the health, safety, and equality of LGBTI+ people in Ireland to provide your training, you support the community directly rather than giving profits to private enterprise.

Your donations made in place of us charging for training go straight into our support services and anti-discrimination campaigns, improving the lives of thousands of LGBTI+ people across Ireland each year.

Feedback

“BeLonG To have provided training sessions for our workforce on LGBTI+ 101 and Trans inclusion. The moderators of these training sessions (Matt and Oisin) have managed to create open, safe spaces where employees have felt they can ask questions and have nuanced discussions. The content has been engaging and informative whilst also dispelling any myth that the LGBTI+ community don’t face discrimination within Ireland. It has truly brought these issues to life for both me and our employees while instilling so much hope for the next generations.” 

Sara Benson – People Operations Representative – New Relic Inc

“The workshops provided by the team in BeLonG To have been exceptional. Their facilitators create a positive, safe, and engaging atmosphere for participation and questions. Participants are still talking about the training and the understanding they gained from it. Crucially the training program has supported the furthering of our diversity and inclusion strategy at Bank of Ireland.” 

Francis Coll, Chief Risk Officer of New Ireland Assurance, Bank of Ireland Group

“Thank you for delivering a truly inspiring session that will remain in the minds of our leaders for some time. You delivered from the heart with passion whilst backing your statements with indisputable business fact and figures, leaving attendees with one resounding message – diversity and inclusivity is key!”
