LGBTIQ+ Awareness/Inclusivity with Meridian

LGBTIQ+ [Ai] training is delivered in partnership with Meridian and endeavours to equip participants with helpful information and simple tools that will assist in bridging communication gaps and bring clarity to an otherwise complex and fast-moving space. Through an engaging presentation and open discussion, our aim is to initiate a conversation that has the potential to extend beyond the training room.

An online, pre-training questionnaire is offered to all participants, which can determine a baseline of knowledge of LGBTIQ+ communities. An invitation to ask anonymous questions is also included. This information may shape the structure of the session and promote healthy and safe discussion.
