Join OMA and Equitas Health for our Pre-Conference workshop, "Serving the LGBTQ Community with Cultural Humility and Structural Competency."

The LGBTQ community is growing both in size and visibility. This introductory training will provide you with the knowledge, skills, and behaviors needed to best serve this community.

Essential questions for this pre-conference workshop include:

  • What does it mean when we say a person is LGBTQ?

  • Why is it important that LGBTQ people see themselves represented at historical sites and museums?

  • How can participants interact with LGBTQ people in a culturally competent manner?

The goals for this session include:

  • Participants will understand what it means to be LGBTQ, and the challenges LGBTQ people face daily.

  • Participants will help create a safer and more inclusive environment for LGBTQ visitors and fellow staff.
