ONE Community Institute


After more than a decade of work with Arizona’s business community, ONE Community understands that every organization can only benefit from embracing diversity and inclusiveness. In fact, we believe it is a necessity to go beyond simply following the letter of the law. You must develop an internal and external culture, becoming truly competent in LGBTQ+ inclusive Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in order to recruit top talent and stay competitive. That's why we developed ONE Community Institute.

This complimentary certification is provided to small businesses (less than 50 employees) in Pima County through a grant from Local First Arizona's AZ Navigator Program.

Please do not sign up for this certification if your business/organization is not based in Pima County or if you have more than 50 employees.

Attendees will receive ONE Community Institute's LGBTQ+ Certification, below are the sessions

LGBTQ+ 101 & 201: Take a deep dive into the terminology needed to understand the distinction between sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and the LGBTQ+ community as a whole. Learning how to understand and speak the language while creating a safe space for questions gives your team the confidence it needs to create the affirming workplace you desire.

THE UNITY JOURNEY: Embark on an empathy building exercise that takes you through the experience of coming out as LGBTQ+. Discussion and sharing throughout the exercise allows your team the time to process and bond together, as they prepare to take the next steps in their journey.

STATE of LGBTQ+ AZ: This presentation offers an in-depth assessment of the current state of affairs for LGBTQ+ people in Arizona. Featuring existing policies, issue analysis, economic data, and action items, the presentation serves as a road map detailing where we are, where we need to go and how to get there to become a state that celebrates, respects and protects us all equally.

This complimentary certification is provided to small businesses in Pima County through a Grant from Local First Arizona's AZ Navigator Grant. Special thanks to StartUp Tucson for hosting our event.
