    Event description

    How DO you build LGBTQIA+ inclusion in the workplace, in your classroom, or in your community?Β It can be hard to know where to start if you're not confident in your knowledge – but the renowned Minus18 Education Team is here to help.Β 

    In honour of IDAHOBIT – the International Day Against LGBTQIA+ Discrimination – we're diving into all the most frequently asked questions we receive from workplaces, organisations, and schools.Β

    What is IDAHOBIT?Β 

    And what's IDAHOBIT? Every May 17, it's a chance for the whole community – workplaces, schools, individuals – to go rainbow and stand out against discrimination. It's a day full of morning teas, school assemblies, rainbow digital meetings, classroom discussions, fundraisers, and education.

    The stakes have never been higher to create LGBTQIA+ inclusion at work and school. Discrimination and bigotry is on the rise, and building a more inclusive Australia is up to all of us. We can all make a difference, even by something as small as putting our pronouns in our email signature, or hosting a rainbow morning tea on May 17.Β 

    Whether you're an individual, workplace, school or community organisation, this in-depth training will equip you with the knowledge you need on IDAHOBIT, and to champion inclusivity year-round.

      Who is this for?

      For adults who'd like to learn about IDAHOBIT, the basics of gender and sexuality,Β AND the basics of being an ally.Β 

      Whether you're applying your knowledge to a workplace, school, retail or service setting - we'll teach you all about the LGBTQIA+ basics in how you can level up your allyship towards colleagues, clients, friends or family.
