                                         LGBT Train the Trainer

 As we work with people in our community, we are often called upon to educate on LGBT issues. We are going to explore the tools for communicating about LGBT issues effectively and discuss the challenges that arise with various populations and settings. Interactive, welcoming, and fun, this workshop will provide opportunities for learning and problem solving at all experience levels.

Willy Wilkinson, MPH is an award-winning writer and public health consultant who has worked extensively with health service providers, educational institutions, and social justice organizations to develop culturally competent service approaches for LGBT populations. Nationally recognized for his expertise in transgender public health issues, Willy also has extensive experience with communities of color, substance users, sex workers, youth, and people with disabilities. He earned a Masters in Public Health in Community Health Education from UC Berkley, and a BA in Women’s Studies from UC Santa Cruz. As a trainer, Willy employs a welcoming, interactive, non-punishing approach that honors participants’ expertise and welcomes all questions, at all knowledge levels.
