LGBTQ Worker Inclusion featuring Morgan Metzer of The Reckoning Trades project, and hosted by Kabri Lehrman-Schmidt.
This Spring Forum we’re looking forward to diving into the topic of LGBTQ worker inclusion on construction jobsites. Hosting the forum is Hensel Phelps' acclaimed jobsite-culture advocate and construction superintendent, Kabri Lehrman-Schmidt. Our featured program will be presented by Morgan Mentzer, co-founder and attorney at The Lavender Rights Project, a LGBTQI+ legal-services nonprofit, and co-founder of The Reckoning Trade Project, a nonprofit focusing on increasing representation and retention of LGBTQI+ trades workers.
Morgan will give our forum audience an overview of the Reckoning Trade Project's training resources for LGTBQI+ inclusion, and give us a primer on best practices for employers to create inclusive practices for gender diversity in the workplace. She'll focus on gender diversity in the trades, and explain the differences between sex, gender identity and sexual orientation, pronoun usage and state/federal discrimination law.
