Professional Development & Workshops

Striped rainbow line

It’s a shame to hide a rainbow

Up to 20% of your employees could be rainbow (LGBTQIA+). But up to 57% of rainbow employees hide their sexuality or gender identity at work, which means productivity can suffer – at a cost to your business.

InsideOUT helps you avoid these hidden costs.

Our workshops can make your business more productive and more inclusive, so your rainbow colleagues feel 100% welcome.

We offer professional development training and workshops suitable for any organisation, business, workplace or school that wants to become more inclusive and accommodating of rainbow people.

We also offer sexuality and gender diversity education for health and wellbeing days in schools, or workshops for youth events.

We can tailor your workshop to support the outcomes you hope to achieve.

 Got something else in mind? Let us know. Our team has delivered workshops on topics ranging from social media and leadership skills to panel discussions, and we provide multiple options in terms of workshop duration and cost.

“It both informed and educated us, and in many cases opened our eyes to the size of both the challenge and the prize if we get it right.”

“They came to each of our team meetings, provided insight and tips and were amazing to work with. Co-design with them – it’ll be the best decision you made.”

Natalia Albert, Founder of the Kate Sheppard Place Women.

“I would highly recommend it to anyone who is at any stage of their understanding of gender and sexual diversity issues – as everyone will learn something.”

Conor Twyford, Manager, HELP Wellington Sexual Abuse Foundation

Their presentation was professional and non-threatening. It enabled us to reflect on our current practices and we were left with some good practical ideas for moving forward, and resources that will be useful to assist us in our journey.
