LGBTQIA+ Cultural Competency 101
March 5 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm$25
This 90-minute LGBTQIA+ Cultural Competency 101 training is open to anyone who wants to learn more about LGBTQIA+ terms and concepts.
The Utah Pride Center offers LGBTQIA+ cultural competency trainings to businesses and community groups including educators, caseworkers, health care professionals, mental health professionals, and youth service providers. This training is 101 in understanding the experiences of LGBTQIA+ people, and how to work in our homes, places of work, congregations, and communities to improve the lives of members of the LGBTQIA+ community.
The 90-minute training covers basic language, current research and best practices related to the LGBTQIA+ community, privilege and daily experiences of LGBTQIA+ people including micro-aggressions, intersectionality and multiple marginalized statuses, the experiences of LGBTQIA+ youth and disparities in this group, and resources available in the community.
After the training, participants will have increased familiarity, sensitivity, and understanding of cultural characteristics, history, values, belief systems, and behaviors of LGBTQIA+ individuals. Participants will know that cultural differences as well as similarities exist, and practice viewing these without assigning values (better or worse, right or wrong).
Registrants will receive a Zoom invite to the training 24 hours prior to the training.
