Lighthouse Resources – Gender Awareness

This training will explore gender identity and how to support and work alongside people who identify as gender diverse. It will explore harmful stereotypes, labelling and rigid gender constructs and how we can work to challenge them. The training is not only beneficial to those working alongside the LGBTQIA+ community but for all people to reflect on our own gender biases and how this impacts the children we raise and support and individuals around us. This training will cover different ages of development and is beneficial to teaching in early years through to supporting adults.

Topics include:

  • What is Gender and Gender Identity
  • Statistics around Gender Identity
  • Gender Identity and Wellbeing
  • Language and Jokes
  • Harmful Stereotypes
  • Media representation of Gender Diversity
  • Harmful Narratives
  • Support – What can you do?
  • Personal Biases and Heteronormative Privilege
  • What makes you, you?

Presented by: Lighthouse Resources
