CNM is proud to introduce our NEW Interim President & CEO, Wanda Lyle!

Creating an Open and Affirming Culture of Care for LGBTQ+ Staff & Clients [DEI Workshop] – (In-Person)

Facilitator: Pamela Sheffer

This workshop will provide organizational leaders a road map to transformative action steps to create an open and affirming environment for LGBTQ+ staff and clients.

Through the use of evaluation tools, experiential exercises and breakout sessions, participants will create an action plan for change within their organizations which will create a socially and emotionally safer environment for all staff and clients. (Lunch is provided.)

Note: Organizations that are able to send two or more leaders to the workshop get an increased benefit due to the opportunity to brainstorm and create a plan that is tailored to their organizations unique needs and culture.

Learning Objectives:
•    Increase understanding of LGBTQ language and culture
•    Discover organizational blind spots on open and affirming practices
•    Engage with peers to uncover best practices
•    Create an action plan to transition into an open and affirming organization
