Positive Space Initiative: Becoming an Ambassador for LGBTQ2+ Inclusion (W081)

Description

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

While much progress has been made, the LGBTQ2+ communities still face challenges with heterosexism, genderism, transphobia and homophobia, which can lead to individuals feeling unsafe at work. This course explains what it means to be a Positive Space ambassador and prepares individuals to offer support to their colleagues as a Positive Space ambassador in the workplace. Through scenarios and practical exercises, participants will learn behaviours that can help bring diversity and inclusion into the modern workplace.

Topics include:

  • defining the role of a Positive Space ambassador
  • outlining helpful behaviours of ambassadors
  • reviewing different support methods

Notes:

To effectively take on the role of a Positive Space ambassador, learners are expected to have taken Positive Space awareness training prior to registering for this course, such as Positive Space Initiative: LGBTQ2+ Awareness (W080) or an equivalent.

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