Anyone Can Be an Ally was written and presented by Brian McNaught.

What are the special concerns and needs for LGBT coworkers? When gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people don’t feel safe and valued at work, productivity goes down, and organizations fail in their efforts to attract and retain the best and brightest talent. Many organizations realize this, and have created clear policies on the issues. But in order for the climate to change, gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people need allies to speak up.

In this award-winning training program, noted educator and author on LGBT issues, Brian McNaught demonstrates how anyone can be an ally to create a respectful workplace that is inclusive of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender co-workers.

Anyone Can Be An Ally: Speaking Up for an LGBT Inclusive Workplace is a very thoughtful, balanced resource that merits much attention… an important film on an issue so few of us understand how to address in the work environment. It is one thing to have a skill set in referencing and working with race or religion. It is quite another challenge to talk about gender and sexual orientation. My professional motivation in commending Brian McNaught’s film is that I recognize, despite my personal commitment, that I have a lot to learn about how to be a skillful and effective ally. This film would be helpful to anyone who wants to help create a work environment where every employee can flourish because they do not have to expend the energy trying to maintain a firewall between their family/personal lives and their professional lives. These are things that those of us who are heterosexual simply do not have to worry about. Look at this video. Celebrate what everyone, when respected, can bring to your world.Eileen McDargh, author
