The Town Call series features guest speakers presenting on current LGBT topics via monthly one hour webinars. They also provide in-depth information on major Out & Equal such as the annual Workplace Summit. Each session includes a presentation or discussion on issues faced by LGBT employees, polices, benefits, trends or breaking news. A Q&A session follows each presentation, creating an interactive learning experience. The Town Calls are designed to further the knowledge and tools for Employee/Business Resource Group members, HR Professionals, and Executives as well as meeting the needs of busy working professionals, federal, and non-profit employees. These calls are also recorded and can be used at LGBT events and meetings for training within your organization.

Bisexuality in the Workplace
Thursday, Sep 25, 2014 - 12 pm Pacific Time
1 pm Mountain | 2 pm Central | 3 pm Eastern
The Bisexual Leadership Roundtable and the Out & Equal Bisexual Advisory Committee will be hosting this month’s town call during Bisexual Awareness Week. The Awareness week will focus on different aspects of the experience of being bisexual and provides many opportunities for learning a wide variety of things you may not even have been aware you didn't know. The week itself encompasses these topics:
Sunday 9/21 -- Bi History
Monday 9/22 -- Bi Facts
Tuesday 9/23 -- "My bisexuality looks like...."
Wednesday 9/24 -- Bisexual Media
Thursday 9/25 -- Bi Men
Friday 9/26 -- Bi and Trans
Saturday 9/27 -- Bi Allies
The call will highlight many of these areas and bring the experts in to provide tools to use in your workplace and community. The “B” in LGBT is often overlooked, forgotten or doesn’t feel welcomed into our Employee/Business Resource Groups. Learning more about the diversity of this community and breaking down myths will advance our goal of inclusion on the job. Join our expert panel to learn about making the connections, finding tools to expand your outreach to bisexuals and learning what being an ally to the “B” is all about.
