Training & Education
A Gender Agenda (AGA) is actively engaged in increasing public awareness and understanding of intersex, trans and gender diversity issues. We do this by offering up to date consulting, training and education.
AGA’s consulting, training and education programs are based on the foremost research as well as the lived experiences of the communities we represent. As such, our training services offer current understandings and appreciation of the issues that are faced by the intersex, trans and gender communities.
As an organisation grounded in the lived experience of our members in the trans, intersex and gender diverse communities we are uniquely qualified to offer expertise and well informed training in this area. We have been working in the intersex, trans and gender diverse space for over 10 years and are an already trusted provider of support, advocacy and training services by Government departments and community organisations.
Our staff members have a diversity of skills, knowledge and lived experience. AGA staff all work closely with intersex, trans and gender diverse people on a day to day level in policy and advocacy areas and community engagement. AGA training has been built on a participatory community based model which is interactive and engaging while utilising the latest research and best practice.
People who identify as intersex, trans and gender diverse often experience barriers to accessing necessary services due to discrimination or harassment based on their gender identity and gender expression. All of our training and education programs form part of our efforts to challenge systemic transphobia and to foster environments that are inclusive of gender identity and gender expression. Developing a best practice workplace that is inclusive and respectful of gender diversity will ensure your service and organisation will be at the forefront of positive change.
Our workshops and resources explore the experiences and challenges faced by intersex, trans and gender diverse people as well as supporting organisations and individuals to develop approaches which foster inclusive environments.
AGA offers 101 Training which is a standard introductory and also delivers Advanced Workshops on intersex, trans and gender diversity. These trainings offer participants knowledge and skills for working with trans, intersex and gender diverse people, covering a wide range of issues from: psycho-social health factors, attitudes and values, cultural diversity, myths and issues and personal perspectives faced by intersex, trans and gender diverse people. AGA also works with services to develop sessions targeted specifically to enhance organisation’s service delivery.
A Gender Agenda (AGA) provides programs that promote learning and social development with individuals and groups in their communities using a range of formal and informal methods. AGA strives for community welfare and for the betterment of humanity.
