About The Event
The Milwaukee LGBT Community Center is dedicated to serving the needs of LGBTQ people and to making the Greater Milwaukee area safer and more inclusive. Their focus is on anti-violence, healthy relationships, counseling, Youth & Elder Adult programming and more. For this reason, we have engaged their team in a dynamic discussion to look at how HR professionals can support members of the LGBTQ community in the workplace.
