Facilitated by: Ashley Heidebrecht, LMSW Are You Ready To BECOME AN ALLY? In society, we operate with a set of social norms and expectations. In many ways it feels comfortable to go along with them. When you think about gender, sex, and sexual orientation, your perception of those words, and what you associate them with, is impacted by those social norms and expectations. But, how were those norms and expectations created? And, by whom, and why? What happens when your very existence, who you are, is not within those norms and expectations? If you’re willing to take an honest look, it’s not difficult to see the impact. This training will explore these questions and more, and their impact on the LGBTQ+ community. This is a virtual training, with 3 modules with 5 hours of total continuing education. Objectives: • Examine historical events, ideologies, and social structures, and how they inform modern day beliefs, bias, and perception regarding the LGBTQ+ community • Identify and explain basic LGBTQ+ terminology • Analyze concepts such as the gender binary, gender roles, heteronormativity, homophobia and transphobia • Reflect on personal identity, bias, privilege, and intersectionality • Identify what LGBTQ+ allyship means and ways to make allyship part of your life and/or practice.
