LGBTQ Rights in Your Workplace

 

​​​​​​​​​​​

Ensuring LGBTQ Member Rights in All School Workplaces

While many ETFO members strive to make schools safe for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning (LGBTQ) students as part of ETFO initiatives, it is equally important to ensure that workplaces are safe for Federation members.

The ETFO brochure LGBTQ Rights in Your Workplace is a call to action for all members to play a role in ensuring an inclusive, respectful and safe workplace at their schools. It sets out LGBTQ rights in the context of the Ontario Human Rights Code and Ontario College of Teachers Ethical Standards. It also references Ontario's Equity and Inclusive Education Strategy and the Accepting Schools Act which provide a framework for boards, administrators and teachers to create positive and inclusive school climates.

The brochure also contains information for members who are considering being out or not in school workplaces and the types of support that ETFO is ready to provide through its Professional Relations Services. This is the first in a series of initiatives which are part of ETFO's Strategy for Challenging Homophobia and Transphobia and Championing Safe Workplaces.
