The training will develop shared vocabulary and understanding of the LGBTQ+ acronym, uplift community strengths, and review the significance of pronouns. We will build common frameworks for understanding gender and sexuality, discuss the minority stress model and its implications for transgender people in the workplace, and highlight best practices and resources for Cultivating Transgender Affirming Workplaces. This training is adapted from Pride Center of Vermont’s LGBTQ+ Best Practices Training which has been provided to over 1200 people this past year and has an average review of over 4.9/5.0 (based on a likelihood to recommend).
