LGBTQIA+ Inclusivity Training

In an ever changing and increasingly diverse workforce, all organizations should be sensitive to the needs of all groups and client bases. This training will provide attendees with the opportunity to ask questions, debunk stereotypes and learn inclusive language.

Participants in the LGBTQIA+ inclusivity training will be able to:
  • Distinguish and understand the differences between sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression; 
  • Participants will have an enhanced understanding of LQBTQIA+ terminology; 
  • Discuss how to be culturally sensitive and inclusive of the LGBTQIA+ community, including employees, patients, clients, and community partners; 
  • Assist participants in understanding the transgender umbrella and as well as pronoun use; and 
  • Identify and describe stigma and discrimination associated with being a sexual and gender minority and how policies and laws both statewide and federally impact the lives of LGBT people. 
  • For health organizations, the training will discuss health disparities among the LGBT community and how health providers can positively impact LGBT health outcomes. 
  • The training will include templates for a variety of forms that could be adapted for your organization including intake forms, HR forms (including language for inclusive job descriptions) and signage.
