Embracing Diversity and Inclusion: Sex, Gender, and Sexuality

About This Event


As our society continues to evolve, so does our understanding of individual identities. Understanding and respecting gender and sexuality diversity has become paramount, particularly within healthcare environments.

This skill-building session, offered by the Transgenda podcast co-hosts Ana and Cam, is designed to provide healthcare professionals with a comprehensive understanding and the necessary tools to ensure that all patients feel welcomed, respected, and supported, irrespective of their identity.

Key Objectives

  • Understanding gender identity and sexuality, including key terms to establish a shared language.
  • Creating a welcoming environment that honors the identities and experiences of gender and sexually diverse patients and staff.
  • Being sensitive with communication using respectful inquiry to understand individual needs.
  • Addressing bias and enhancing empathy by understanding how gender nonconforming people are viewed by society and learning about the unique challenges trans and non-binary individuals face particularly in healthcare settings.
