Workshop: Gender and sexuality equity and inclusivity

Tuesday, 6 March 2018 - 9:30am to 4:00pm

A one-day workshop to support organisations to become more inclusive of staff, students, patients and clients who are sex-, sexuality- and gender-diverse.

This workshop will focus on:

  • defining 'sex', 'sexuality', 'gender' and 'gender expression'
  • supporting the needs of each letter of the acronym
  • LGBTIQA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, asexual)
  • identifying current social and legislative changes affecting the community and your workplace
  • pronouns and partners: using inclusive language
  • identifying how welcoming your physical environment is
  • how to review policies, processes and paperwork
  • LGBTIQA+ services and social groups, including queer online spaces
  • being a better ally, particularly to young people and those who may not be ‘out’.
