Education Is The Key

Creating inclusive workplaces, public accommodations, schools and social service/health facilities is critical to the Center’s vision of a Sacramento in which LGBT people are universally respected and affirmed. For service providers and community-based organizations, the Center also offers Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) due to the prevalence of suicide in LGBT youth.

The Center can assist employers, business owners, educators or care professionals with trainings tailored to meet specific needs, ages, competency levels and time frames.

For an optimum experience, certain trainings are actually collaborations with community partners to ensure content is developed and presented by by the best knowledge base possible.

Samples of past training topics include:

  • LGBTQ 101
  • Understanding Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity, A Cultural Responsiveness Training
  • Being Trans
  • Gender Socialization
  • Queer People of Color
  • Queer Perspectives: Understanding Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault in the LGBT Community

The Center also can provide speakers for panel discussions through our Queer Voices, an LGBTQ speaker’s panel.

As the Center views cultural responsiveness trainings key to its mission, fees are intentionally kept low. Pricing varies according to time required, hard costs required (such as handouts) and topic(s) to be covered.

Spreading The Word

The Center has an outreach team that travels to resource fairs, conferences, community events and organization meetings to talk about the Center, its programs and upcoming events. The Center can set up a booth, present to an audience and/or provide informational materials.
