Course Description:

This course is the first seminar in a series of selected topics dealing with current and emerging issues in the workplace. Estimates vary, but the percentage of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered (LGBT) employees comprise between three and twelve percent of the workforce in America today. LGBT issues, however, are rarely addressed in current management courses. This course will provide a framework for understanding issues of organizational heterosexism, homophobia and heterosexist privilege. Students will learn a broader framework within which to manage and lead in today's diverse workplace. Students will also learn how to recognize inequities that may go unnoticed in the short run, but impact individual and organizational effectiveness and productivity over time.

Prerequisites: Foundation knowledge in human resources management and/or organizational behavior through courses/studies or experience.
