The Education subcommittee was formed in response to RCC members’ recognizing that there is both a need and an increasing demand for 2LGBTQ+ inclusion training – yet there is also a lack of awareness of what educational resources exist in our community.
Our purpose is to enhance collaboration and knowledge sharing around 2LGBTQ+ topics and issues, by identifying and promoting learning opportunities offered by individuals and organizations in Waterloo Region.
We are currently compiling a list of local trainers, speakers, and consultants, which will be made publicly available. Gathering this information will allow agencies and other community groups and members to determine what options best meet their needs and which are the most accessible for them, based on their resources.
We are not vetting the trainers, speakers, and consultants, nor are we ranking them against each other. The list will simply compile the information we receive and it is up to the readers to investigate further. We hope this will help to highlight that there are many opportunities that exist in Waterloo Region for learning about 2LGBTQ+ inclusion.
If you would like to add your name and information to our growing list, please fill out the survey: Waterloo Region Local Trainers, Speakers and Consultants on 2SLGBTQ+ Issues.
We are looking for people to help with organizing the final guide. If you’d like to join us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
