Exploring gender, identity, and sexuality. Oct 6-7, 2010

This is an exciting professional development experience for people working within education, health, and the community sector. Its ideal for those working as a health practitioner, youth worker, teacher, counselor, social worker, parent or caregiver, or anyone interested in expanding their knowledge base.

Testimonial Comments from Participants:
“Free to be me” ethos & humour raised awareness of personal struggles, wonderful & diverse participants. (Counselor)

Gave me validity as a heterosexual to work with people who indentify themselves as queer. (Health Professional)

It was great hearing personal stories to get away from the rhetoric of policy & strategy, and hear the stories that should inform. (Social Worker)

Personally I feel I have grown – just coming out myself a few weeks ago this has been an eye opener for me & a great education session! (Youth Worker)

DiverseX will provide a safe environment in which to learn and share ideas that promote positive understanding of diversity within our community. Over two days the program will create awareness as we explore gender, identity, and sexuality; and new ways of working together for change.
