This online session utilising Zoom surveys the ‘here and now’ landscape for young LGBT+ people, with the aim of developing attendees’ awareness, understanding and cultural competence around LGBT+ issues.
We are pleased to welcome a substantial and informed input from Sam Hope, whose work encompasses therapy, supervision, training and consultancy. During today’s event, Sam will make reference to the following:
- The diversity of LGBT+ community
- Terminology and why language matters
- Challenging unconscious bias and assumptions that impact interactions with learners/colleagues
- A little extra about the less heard voices in the community; e.g., bi, asexual and trans people, and intersectionality
- Steps to make your institution more inclusive for LGBT+ people
- The benefits to all of a more inclusive learning environment
- Current issues affecting the LGBT+ community, including legal changes in trans healthcare
- Controversies around teaching about LGBT+
We are also pleased to welcome an input from Kelly Townend (Operations and Quality Manager, West Yorkshire Learning Provider Network) who will share practical suggestions on how to embed LGBT+ into the curriculum.
Facilitated by Karen Plowman (Head of Professional Development, Skills and Education Group), participants will be encouraged to ask questions and share ideas, enabling effective networking and collaboration.
