Leading Through Understanding: LBGTQ Identities

Diversity can come in many forms - one of which is sexual orientation and identity. However, this is also one of the hardest to acknowledge and feel comfort with when you do not have a thorough understanding of how to interact with someone who identifies differently than you do. This workshop will help the participant become more familiar with the LGBTQIA+ spectrum.

The objectives will be to:

  • Explore basic terms and vocabulary
  • Distinguish between sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression 
  • Explore ways to empower those with LGBTQ identities and to create safe interactions

This workshop is for anyone that is interested to become more knowledgeable about LGBTQ identities in order to create a more inclusive and accepting environment in their workplace, community, or just to improve personal interactions

Dr. Mary Rodriguez is facilitating this workshop.
