Our April 2020 LGBTQ+ Best Practices Training Webinar has been rated 5.0/5.0!
- "Skylar and Taylor have created a training that will clarify some tremendously important topics that we can all benefit from understanding in more depth, or maybe for the first time, while understanding the importance of applying this information to our lives in general - whether this information regarding the LGBTQIA community is new to you or quite familiar, the way in which it is presented was clear, friendly, and very helpful."
- “Skylar and Taylor are amazing people and have a plethora of knowledge and understanding of the material in the training that will shed some light on subjects that we all need to have a better understanding about. I highly recommend this training, and left feeling more informed, inspired, and hopeful for the future.”
- “We all need to be aware of how our language and actions effect others. Learning this information is specifically helpful to those in the LGBTQIA community, and should be applied daily. If we are educated, then we can create change from a powerful place of knowledge, care, and treating others with immense kindness and respect.”
- “A training like this can illustrate things that you don't know you don't know. It can help you to act on understanding instead of on possibly implicit biases.”
