Understanding LGBTQ+ Identities
This training will cover the core competencies regarding the current experiences, needs, and identities of LGBTQ+ people and communities. Our training offers an interactive, non-judgmental space in which participants can ask honest questions and unlearn some of the societal myths we are taught about LGBTQ+ people. We cover essential LGBTQ+ topics, such as Gender Identity, Gender Expression, Sexual Orientation, and Assigned Sex at Birth in addition to fundamental concepts such as Intersectionality and Cultural Humility. We pay special attention to transgender identities, busting many of the stereotypes currently seen in the news and media. We will also spend time going over interactive better practices so we can learn how to provide better care to patients, guests, and employees, ultimately working to improve patient outcomes.
