Trainings in Sudbury & Toronto: Queering the Family Tree

Queering The Family Tree: Building LGBTQ-Inclusive Programs and Services

 

FULL-DAY WORKSHOP

Welcoming LGBTQ people and families into programs and services can mean taking practical steps such as re-designing intake forms, putting up posters, or incorporating books that reflect diversity. It can also mean deepening your understanding of how assumptions about gender, sexuality, and family composition shape your everyday practice.

In this workshop, we will:

  • Reflect on common barriers to effective work with LGBTQ parents and their children
  • Clarify commonly-used terms, definitions, and language related to LGBTQ identities & communities
  • Explore some practical suggestions for making programs & services more welcoming to LGBTQ familie

Two Days, Two Locations, Two Trainings

We are very excited to be offering this full day workshop as part of a two-day training program in partnership with Rainbow Health Ontario.

Both trainings will be offered in both Sudbury and Toronto, the first day of each training will be a full-day workshop Introduction to LGBTQ Health which will be offered in French in Sudbury, and in both English and French in Toronto.

The second day of each training will be the full-day Queering the Family Tree workshop.

Participants have the option of registering for one or both days.
