In partnership with the Ontario Centre of Excellence for Child and Youth Mental Health, the Child Welfare League of Canada and the Canadian Association of Social Workers, Wisdom2Action is thrilled to present a new webinar on an implementation-based approach to 2SLGBTQ+ inclusion in community, health and social services.
Despite significant efforts to build 2SLGBTQ+ inclusion within community, health and social services over the past decade, 2SLGBTQ+ community members continue to face stigma, discrimination and ignorance when accessing care. Organizations have traditionally relied on one-off 2SLGBTQ+ inclusion workshops that, despite the best of intentions, are not sufficient to truly create 2SLGBTQ+ inclusive spaces and services.
This webinar will provide an alternative approach that moves away from one-off workshops and towards an implementation-based process to effectively change organizational cultures and services. Through an implementation-based approach, organizations can develop and implement effective strategies to move 2SLGBTQ+ inclusion forward by building relationships with local 2SLGBTQ+ communities and intentionally strengthening service provider competencies working with 2SLGBTQ+ service users and introducing necessary policies and procedures to raise the bar on 2SLGBTQ+ inclusion.
Building on two ground-breaking new resources to help the youth-serving sector take action on 2SLGBTQ+ inclusion, co-created with the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, Planned Parenthood Toronto, the Ontario Centre of Excellence for Child and Youth Mental Health, the Canadian Teachers Federation, the Child Welfare League of Canada and Action Canada for Sexual Health and Rights, this webinar will provide participants with strategies and tools to improve 2SLGBTQ+ inclusion within their organizations.
