As workplaces continue to monitor staff demographics, or companies continue to better understand the needs of the communities they serve, the need to ensure that data is being collected correctly and in an appropriate manner increases. Whether it's how to phrase questions or the data that can be collected, this panel will be exploring the ways that your organisation can make sure that its data collection is inclusive of the LGBTQ+ community. Join us to learn more about best practices, and answer any questions you may have on this topic!
