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