Join us for a Breakfast in Best Practices – a panel discussion on bi - inclusion, with the members of the London Bisexual Network, hosted at Macquarie.
Prior to the panel discussion, an organiser of the forthcoming Bi Pride will also give a brief introduction.
The panel discussion will cover and promote understanding of:
• bisexuality as an identity, distinct from hetero and other LGBT+ characteristics
• why bi inclusion is an imperative, in and out of the workplace
• the challenges facing bi people, in and out of the workplace
• bi erasure, and how to identify and tackle it
• popular misconceptions and depictions of bi people, and their effects.
