Still places left in Foundations of LGBTI Inclusion half-day training

SHINE SA, 25/01/2018

Creating and sustaining a workplace that values and celebrates sexual and gender diversity has far reaching benefits for all of the stakeholders in your organisation. By providing a culture of safety and respect for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) employees, clients or other stakeholders, your organisation as a whole will benefit from a culture that values and upholds diversity of all kinds. Our Foundations of LGBTI Inclusion training is a half-day (4 hour) workshop that gives participants an overview of the knowledge needed to create an inclusive workplace.

It is low cost ($75 inc GST), and covers topics such as gender diversity, inclusive language and anti-discrimination laws. We will look at key areas of focus for increasing awareness and cultural sensitivity, creating a safe and inclusive environment and where to access further resources and support.

SHine SA was the first  outh Australian organisation to be awarded
Rainbow Tick Accreditation for LGBTI Inclusive practice. We are also respected
for our education and training, making us ideally placed to train your staff on
LGBTI Cultural Safety and Respect.

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.

Why are reports of domestic violence often framed around the alleged perpetrator’s story?

Daily Life,

In its recently updated guidelines on family and domestic violence reporting, the Australian Press Council urges that words matter: “Publications should be mindful of the language they use and try to avoid terms that tend to trivialise, demean or inadvertently excuse family violence, such as ‘a domestic’, a ‘domestic dispute’ or ‘a troubled marriage’.”

With that in mind, framing the alleged domestic homicide of a woman by the hand of her husband as a “tragedy” instead of a violent and deliberate choice is unacceptable.
