We were excited to host this virtual training series looking at gender constructs and experiences along the gender continuum. Our goal for this series is that it supports people in making their work more affirming, welcoming, and culturally safe*, reducing stigma and discrimination.

* We are working with a Public Health Agency of Canada definition of cultural safety which encompasses more than physical health: “An environment where an individual feels physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually safe in the absence of challenges or a denial of their experiences, identities and needs; where individuals from different cultures with unique traditions, values and belief systems are respected and understood. This includes people from marginalized and minority communities.” This definition is in PHAC’s HIV and Hepatitis C Community Action Fund and Harm Reduction Fund grant, which funds our Training and Leadership events.
