New for 2022, we’re taking bookings for our Gender Awareness Training!
On February 8th we’re delivering an online Gender Awareness Training aimed at freelancers, individuals and smaller organisations. You can book a place here.
This session is designed to pass on knowledge and best practice enabling your team to better serve and meet the needs of clients, customers and service users of all genders, particularly those who fall under the Transgender* umbrella.
Drawing upon our extensive experience in meeting the needs of the LGBTQIA community in creating safe and inclusive events, this session covers;
- Context. Where are we at with Trans Rights in the UK?
- Terminology. Words have impact. We explore definitions and when to use.
- Best practice. Looking at case studies and practical steps to implement, in order to be inclusive of transgender and gender diverse people.
- Sharing experiences. Stories help us make sense of the world. We use practical exercises to help develop understanding.
We cover topics including, language, intersectionality, non binary identities, gender in a global context, feminism, LGBTQ+ herstory and transgender health and equality and the law.
In doing so you will;
- Feel more confident in your knowledge of the experiences of people who identify as LGBTQ+.
- Understand what gender inclusive language is and when to use.
- Understand the practical steps to help build gender inclusive practices and spaces.
- Take away your own resource sheet with content covered in the session along with further advice and resources.
