Creating a Culture of Respect for LGBTQ People

11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Alberta Children's Hospital - Theatre

Building on the anti-homophobia work that Calgary Sexual Health Centre has been doing since the 1990s, this workshop defines and examines the differences between sex, gender, and sexual orientation. We discuss the root causes of homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, and heterosexism, while looking at both media messaging and our culturally constructed views of gender and the impact this can have on clients and coworkers. Participants will leave with practical strategies for creating a safer, more inclusive and respectful work environment. They will also learn about additional community resources and referrals.
