SIOUX CITY -- One Iowa, a statewide lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning (LGBTQ) organization, will host its first workshop culture summit from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Sioux City Public Museum, 607 Fourth St.
The event will provide resources for employers and LGBTQ employees to help them create safe and inclusive workplaces. Employees will learn about ways to improve their policies and retain LGBTQ employees and allies will learn about their rights and strategies for creating effective LGBTQ employee resource groups.
One Iowa began hosting similar summits in central and eastern Iowa last October, and hosted summits in those locations this October as well.
"For many of us, our workplace is where we spend most of our lives outside of our home," One Iowa executive director Daniel Hoffman-Zinnel said. "If we don't feel safe and respected there, it has a negative impact on our entire lives."
