Explore the historical, cultural, biological and systemic intersections of Canada’s 2SLGBTQ+ people and discover ways to be more inclusive in the work you do and the life you lead.

The eLearning course is perfect for teams of all sizes, and can be combined with personalized, in-person or virtual Q&A sessions with our education coordinators, and be part of a more holistic, ongoing approach to DEI education in your workplace.

About the course

Rainbow’s 2SLGBTQ+ Affirmation, Inclusion, & Awareness eLearning course is a perfect way to access an understanding of the language that describes sexual and gender minority biology and culture, while digging deeper into the difficult challenges 2SLGBTQ+ people face in society, and then to help you develop simple strategies to ensure your workplace and the way you interact with 2SLGBTQ+ people is inclusive and affirming.

Based on Rainbow Resource Centre’s successful in-person seminars — built upon decades of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) training to businesses, healthcare providers, and schools — this self-guided three-module course offers a unique opportunity to understand 2SLGBTQ+ experiences and culture, a chance to contemplate current issues the community faces, and promotes empathetic solutions for your workplace and community.

Inside the course, you’ll find:

  • Module 1: Sex-Assigned at Birth, Gender Identity, Pronouns, Attraction, and Culture
  • Module 2: Culture and Systems of Oppression
  • Module 3: Understanding Intersectionality and Leveraging Your Privilege to Create Safer Spaces

After completing your purchase of Rainbow’s Affirmation, Inclusion, & Awareness eLearning course, our team will grant you and your team access to all three modules in two business days. At that time, explore the material at your own pace. We encourage you to approach this course with an open mind and a commitment to deepening your understanding of 2SLGBTQ+ experiences in Canada and in a global context.

Holistic DEI training options

At Rainbow, we know eLearning is only part of a DEI strategy. We also recognize the important role storytelling and the ability to ask questions play in maximizing your DEI learning. eLearning is great for reaching teams where they’re at, so they can learn at their own pace.

Your 2SLGBTQ+ inclusion learning doesn’t stop with eLearning, it starts with it.

We encourage you to include eLearning as part of a holistic, ongoing DEI strategy that involves all staff—especially frontline staff who work most closely with 2SLGBTQ+ people. That way you can prioritize in-person learning for those who need a higher level of consultation, such as your leadership team or champions of inclusive strategies.

To ensure your teams and clients receive the full benefits of a 2SLGBTQ+ inclusive DEI strategy, be sure to:

  • Book a virtual or in-person Q&A session for your leadership team – learn more here
  • Book a virtual or in-person Q&A session for your DEI champions – learn more here
  • Book a bespoke session, tailored to your unique situation – learn more here
