LGBTQ-Inclusive Benefits

A company environment that fosters and promotes diversity and inclusion is key for most employers. In the twenty-first century, employees’ needs, and their expectations of their workplace, are changing rapidly. Their families look and act different than they did just a few decades ago, such that employers must evolve their programs and policies to reflect today’s world. Employers are reviewing their benefits to ensure they incorporate LGBTQ employees and dependents’ needs. In the Business Group’s 2020 Large Employers’ Health Care Strategy and Plan Design Survey report, 10% of companies are deploying a center of excellence (COE) for transgender health.

During this webinar, Melissa Engelstad, Senior Manager, LGBTQ Inclusion Lead at Accenture, Ltd., will share her company’s journey on providing transgender-inclusive benefits in several countries and ensuring transgender and non-binary employees are fully supported throughout their journey. Beck Bailey, Director, Workplace Equality Program at Human Rights Campaign Foundation, will share insights and trends in providing inclusive benefits to LGBTQ employees and dependents.
