LGBTIQA+ Foundations of inclusive practice (online)
This is an introductory level workshop for those working in the domestic, family and sexual violence, and women’s community health sectors.
About the workshop
Foundational knowledge about sex, gender and sexuality is important for culturally-appropriate service provision in the family, domestic and sexual violence sector with LGBTIQA+ people and communities. Through understanding the everyday lived experiences of LGBTIQA+ people, professionals can build meaningful engagements and better support clients, create an inclusive environment, and reduce barriers to accessing their services.
This 3-hour workshop provides key information around LGBTIQA+ people and communities, including frameworks for understanding sex, gender and sexuality. It also provides information about inclusive language and practice, experiences of discrimination, and resources and referrals. Participants will be able to reflect on their own and their organisations ways of working, to create a safe, supportive and inclusive environment for LGBTIQA+ people.
You can ask that! This workshop will provide you with a safe and supportive space to ask any questions you have.

Better understand LGBTIQA+ people and communities
