Est culpa porro

Quam deleniti inventore qui sed alias in temporibus.

the end of the blame game

Tanenbaum and PFLAG National (through its Straight for Equality in the Workplace 
and Faith programs) are teaming up to help companies move beyond the blame game
and proactively address the intersection of sexual orientation, gender identity/expression
and religion at work.

Tanenbaum offers real world solutions to a real world problem: religious discrimination and hate. We are the only secular, non-sectarian not-for-profit organization with over a decade of experience providing companies with practical programs that help them function in a religiously inclusive manner.

PFLAG National is the nation’s largest family and ally organization. Uniting people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) with families, friends and allies, PFLAG is committed to advancing equality and full societal affirmation of LGBTQ+ people through its threefold mission of support, education and advocacy. Through its Straight for Equality program, more than 20,000 people have been educated in learning sessions in nearly 150 organizations.

In a joint session, Mark E. Fowler of Tanenbaum and Jean-Marie Navetta of PFLAG will identify the misconceptions and oversimplifications that too often derail constructive conversations about LGBTQ+ and religious identities and result in blame shifting. Learning sessions will provide attendees with the parameters and possibilities for what can be done to mitigate conflicts and create cultures of inclusion for everyone at work.
