Positive Space: Ambassador Training (W024)


Type: Classroom
Duration: 03:00 hours

A modern public service requires diversity and inclusion. While much progress has been made, the LGBTQ2+ community still faces challenges with heterosexism, genderism, transphobia and homophobia. This training is for individuals interested in learning about issues related to the Positive Space initiative, or in becoming a workplace Positive Space ambassador. All employees need to feel comfortable at work to be creative and innovative. Marginalization based on sexual orientation and gender identity can cause many LGBTQ2+ people to remain “closeted” and to censor themselves.

Topics include:

  • what positive space is, and why it is important
  • global and Canadian context for gender and sexual diversity
  • the paradigm of gender and sex
  • gender and sexual diversity terminology
