Positive Space Initiative: LGBTQ2+ Awareness (W080)

Description

Type: Virtual classroom
Duration: 04:00 hours
Status: Active

Diversity and inclusion are essential for building a modern, high-performing public service. While much progress has been made, the LGBTQ2+ communities still face challenges with heterosexism, genderism, transphobia and homophobia. Marginalization based on sexual orientation and gender identity can cause many LGBTQ2+ people to remain "closeted" or to feel unsafe at work.

LGBTQ2+ = Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Two-Spirit, + (additional identities)

This training is for individuals who are interested in learning about issues related to the LGBTQ2+ communities and wish to contribute to the creation of a safer, more inclusive public service.

Topics include:

  • gender and sexual diversity: concepts, terminology and vocabulary
  • LGBTQ2+: a Canadian history
  • Positive Space: what it is and why it's important
  • heteronormativity, cis-normativity and privilege
  • being an ally
