About the Course:

LGBT+ diversity and inclusion training is complex.
This online course offers an opportunity to gain awareness and provide workers with information endorsed by a nationally-respected, not-for-profit organization – Canada’s LGBT+ Chamber of Commerce (CGLCC).
The course provides a strong introductory foundation for understanding LGBT+ identities – but it doesn’t cover everything. For more immersive training, CGLCC also offers industry-specific workshops for the tourism industry, of which this course is a pre-requisite.

RTO7 is proud to offer two more presentation of Diversity and Inclusion training presented by STEM Consulting. 

This 75-minute session will explore gender identities and sexual orientations, and outline the variety of ways people can identify.  

We will dismantle culturally constructed views of gender and outline the impact this can have on interactions with guests, colleagues and community.  

We will explore the significance of pronouns/prefixes and discuss what we can do if we use them incorrectly.  

The presentation will wrap up with personal steps, identifying tangible ways participants can be more inclusive. 

There will be an open discussion, activities and a Q&A allowing participants to ask questions and further explore some of the topics.
