Oslo Pride: Play fair and encourage inclusivity in the workplace

Attensi and Oslo Pride team up to launch a new training game this Pride Month.

Play fair and encourage inclusivity in the workplace

Attensi is delighted to partner with Oslo Pride. Together we have created a fun, engaging and informative game-based learning tool for people in the workplace to use to help increase and enhance their knowledge and understanding of the LGBTQIA+ community.

The game-based programme takes users on a journey of discovery about the history of Pride and why we celebrate it, as well as exploring some of the challenges that the LGBTQIA+ community may face.

From how to sensitively handle accidental misgendering in the workplace to the potential for unconscious bias, the game is designed to help people bridge the gaps in knowledge, understanding and awareness.

The gameplay includes a mix of 3D avatar simulated dialogues and multiple choice minigames.

The training is designed to

Encourage people think about how they can be more inclusive
Increase awareness of how it can sometimes be challenging to be LGBTQIA+
Enable a better understanding of what it means to be an ally

Although we are making progress to increase inclusivity and equality in the workplace, research shows that we still have work to do. Deloitte’s LGBT+ Inclusion @ Work 2023: A Global Outlook1 reported that, “LGBT+ employees continue to experience non-inclusive behaviors at work, both in the office and virtually.” “42% reported that they have experienced non-inclusive behaviors at work” and “82% of respondents who experienced non inclusive behaviors believe they have experienced those behaviors more than colleagues who are not LGBT+.”

In the UK, a 2021 study from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD)2 showed LGBTQ+ workers reported higher levels of workplace conflict than heterosexual, cisgender workers in the UK. Forty percent of LGBTQ+ employees said they had experienced workplace conflict in the past 12 months, compared with just 29% of non-LGBTQ+ employees. Those numbers were higher again for transgender employees.
