Many LGBT refuse to seek services because they fear discrimination or abuse by staff who do not accept their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender-nonconforming expression. We’re going to change that. And you can help!
SAGE Central Virginia’s Cultural Competency Training Program will give agencies and individual caregivers the tools and information they need to create inclusive and affirming services for all LGBT older adults. This single session introductory training is suitable for all levels of staff, including administrators, service providers and volunteers. And it’s free! This training is held on Tuesdays at alternating times: June 16 5-6PM, June 23 8-9AM, June 30 5-6PM. See the Diversity Richmond calendar for the full schedule. Please let us know you are attending by sending an email to SAGE@DiversityRichmond.org.
Want to help us fund these free trainings? Give a little or give a lot on our CrowdRise funding page and ask your friends to give too! Every little bit helps.
