Diversity & Inclusion Trainings and Services | LGBTQ+ Affirming

Communication for Understanding

The Equitas Health Institute is the education, research, and community engagement arm of Equitas Health. We offer culturally competent education programs in healthcare and corporate settings, focusing on reducing health disparities in the LGBTQ+ community.

Our trainings, assessments, and consulting can be tailored to meet the needs of your team and the people you serve. Trainings are ideal for:

  • Medical or social service providers
  • Higher education institutions
  • Corporate workplaces

You will learn valuable information on engaging with LGBTQ+ people, working with community-based organizations, and supporting LGBTQ+ health research efforts in our region.

Our work with the LGBTQ+ community encompasses all sexual and gender minorities including, but not limited to, those who identify as pansexual, asexual, gender non-conforming, non-binary, and intersex.

Training options

The Equitas Health Institute offers a variety of presentation options for your group, both in-person and virtual.

  • Guest Speaker – An Institute trainer delivers a 30-minute speech tailored to your meeting or function.
  • Presentations – Ideal for larger audiences, our 60-, 90-, and 120-minute presentations offer a more detailed introduction to the chosen subject.
  • Workshops – Designed to maximize audience participation, these half-day or full-day sessions are discussion-based, in-depth opportunities to engage with the topic and trainer.
  • Webinars – Live or recorded, webinars offer flexible, 30- or 60-minute sessions for your group.
