The HR Social Hour Half Hour Podcast

HR pros Jon Thurmond and Wendy Dailey talk to other practitioners about connecting, giving back, and building your network. Join us each week for the podcast and the 4th Sunday of each month at 7 PM Eastern for the #HRSocialHour chat on Twitter!

This is the Wendy-squared episode. We talk about the challenges an LGBTQ+ woman faces in the workplace; we even talk about FMLA! Wendy is the first openly gay West St Paul city council member and we talk about her campaign, her kids and her best advice for employers: don't wait for employees to ask, you can make those easy small changes to start the road to gender-inclusiveness. You can reach Wendy on Twitter as @thewendyberry.
