SHINE SA offers three levels of LGBTIQ+ inclusion training and professional development. This includes:
This online LGBTIQ module has been developed for health professionals by SHINE SA in partnership with ModMed. This course provides an overview of the key concepts for people working with LGBTIQ individuals.
This half-day training provides an overview of the knowledge needed to create an inclusive workplace. It is low cost and covers topics such as inclusive language, anti-discrimination laws, key areas of focus for creating a safe and inclusive environment and where to access further resources and support.
The HOW2 training program is an in-depth, practical program which helps organisations reach their inclusivity goals and potentially achieve accreditation as an inclusive service. Delivered over 4 separate days interspersed with time to implement practical improvements to your workplace’s inclusivity, this program will provide immediate benefits to your organisation.
The program is based on a set of 6 national standards developed by Gay and Lesbian Health Victoria (GLHV), in conjunction with QIP (Quality, Innovation & Performance), known as Rainbow Tick Accreditation. SHINE SA was the first South Australian organisation to be awarded Rainbow Tick accreditation for LGBTI inclusive practice and is proud to support other organisations to create safer and more inclusive workplaces and services.
If you are a not-for-profit or community youth-focused service you may qualify for the Department of Human Services Training subsidy.
