Capacity Building

At Diverse & Resilient, we believe that the end of anti-gay and anti-trans discrimination is key to improving the health and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people in our community.  We work with community members, businesses, social service agencies, medical providers, and other groups to promote acceptance, inclusion, and leadership development.  Because we recognize and value the diversity of our partner agencies, all workshops and presentations are tailored specifically to meet the individual needs of the agencies we serve.

  • Diverse & Resilient created a presentation for our whole team that was engaging, enlightening, and practical. I know it improved our ability to treat everyone who seeks our services with dignity, care, and compassion.

Ally Training

An ally is someone who supports, advocates for, stands up for, and speaks out in solidarity with members of a marginalized group.  Our ally workshops include exploring ways allies can work to create change in their workplaces, communities, and families to achieve LGBTQ health equity and equality.  We offer a series of ally trainings that include interactive activities and provide concrete tools that allies can use to support LGBTQ people at home, work, and in the community.
