A safe, inclusive workplace in many jurisdictions is not just the law; it is a goal of every employee and company that values the contributions, well-being, and productivity of everyone in the organization. In society today, individuals are of many personal communities. In addition to heterosexual or ‘straight’ there is also LGBTQI2SAP – Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, 2S, for two-spirited: an indigenous concept of two sexualities within one body, asexual and pansexual. ‘Trans,’ however, refers to gender identity, whereas the other terms describe primarily sexual orientation. The importance of understanding terms of identification is critical to creating and maintaining a safe workplace.
