The LGBTQ community is growing both in size and visibility. This introductory training will provide attendees with the knowledge, skills, and behaviors needed to best serve this community. Differences between sexual orientation, sex assigned at birth, gender identity, and gender expression will be discussed, and disparities experienced by the LGBTQ community will also be highlighted.

This OMA 2018 Pre-Conference workshop will take place Sunday, April 15, form 1:00-3:30 p.m. at our conference headquarters, the Holiday Inn Dayton Fairborn.

Join presenter Karen Rubin, Education Manager at the Institute for LGBTQ Health Equity at Equitas Health, as she explores essential questions like:

  • What does it mean when we say a person is LGBTQ?

  • Why is it important that LGBTQ people see themselves represented at historical sites and museums?

  • How can participants interact with LGBTQ people in a culturally competent manner?

The goals for this session include:

  • Participants will understand what it means to be LGBTQ, and the challenges LGBTQ people face daily.

  • Participants will help create a safer and more inclusive environment for LGBTQ visitors and fellow staff.

  • Participants will utilize best practices for interacting with LGBTQ visitors and fellow staff in a culturally humble manner.
