Assistant Professor Sameena Azhar, Ph.D., will act as a panelist tomorrow morning from 8 – 9:30 a.m. ET for a virtual event titled “The Workplace Worldwide: The Experiences of LGBTQI+ People.”
The event is sponsored by the UUA International Resources: UU Office at the United Nations.
Women have made extraordinary strides in the fight for equality in the workplace over the last century. However, when considering the intersections of gender and sexuality, LGBTQI+ women and non-binary people continue to face immense discrimination and systemic barriers. In this webinar, guest panelists will share their expertise about what this experience looks like across the globe. From Asia to Africa, we will explore the progress that has been made, as well as the struggles that continue to exist in the workplace.
