One Iowa to host first Sioux City LGBTQ workplace summit

October 1, 2018

SIOUX CITY -- One Iowa, a statewide lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning organization, will host its first Workplace Culture Summit in Siouxland.

The event, which will be taking place from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Oct. 30 at the Sioux City Public Museum, 607 Fourth St., will provide resources for employers and LGBTQ employees to help create safe and inclusive workplaces.

Employers will learn about ways to improve their policies and train LGBTQ talent, while LGBTQ employees and allies will learn about their rights.

“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.”

One Iowa began hosting similar summits in central and eastern Iowa last October. The organization will be hosting summits in those locations this month as well.
