"When I pitched the idea of offering Queer Competency Training at the Vancouver Airport Authority, the HR team was very receptive and encouraging. Together we were able to shape the content of the training to be effective and useful for Airport Authority staff and this has resulted in excellent feedback and value from those who have participated in the training. Openness and willingness to trial initiatives like these are what makes me proud to work here." Farzeen M., Senior Program Analyst
