LGBTQI COMPETENCY TRAINING
PROMOTING SAFETY, INCLUSION AND WELL-BEING
The North County Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning (LGBTQ) Resource Center training is a 2-hour 15m workshop -or less- that promotes safety, inclusion and wellbeing for LGBTQ patients, employees, City workers and clients in general.
Well-trained staff that effectively implement LGBTQ and gender inclusive practices are the foundation of a safe work environment, and it is of a great advantage to the population we serve. Creating a more accepting, inclusive, and diverse work environment teaches people how to recognize and resist stereotypes.
A SAFE SPACE
While there are many programs dedicated to the prevention of bullying, suicide and violence most do not specifically address the issues that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth and adults face on a daily basis. In response, the North County LGBTQ Resource Center has created training and tools for corporations, educators, social workers, law enforcement, mental health providers and service providers in general with the following objectives in mind:
Decrease the use of hurtful or exclusionary language and/or practices
Intervene when witnessing anti-LGBTQI language, harassment and/or bullying.
Understanding the legal frame work and the possible liabilities
Serve as a resource and support, both for individuals who identify as LGBTQ and staff, administrators and clinicians and learn how to be a visible ally.
Explore Intersectionality of race, gender, immigration status and different identities.
Create LGBTQI competency in all aspects of our services and culture.
