November 16, 2017: Creating Inclusive Communities for LGBT Older Adults
This session is designed to help meet the concern that while organizations that work with older adults are open to working with LGBT people, they are not always sure of how to provide the best possible services. Many LGBT people hide their sexual orientation and gender identity, and it is especially important for anyone working in residential or in-home care to understand that the home is a safe space for LGBT people. Many who work with younger LGBT people do not necessarily know the best practices for working with LGBT older adults. During this training, participants will get familiarized with LGBT history and culture, learn how that affects LGBT older adults in care, and learn some best practices for working with LGBT older adults.

January 25, 2018: Working with Different Generations of LGBT People
What makes an older LGBT person different from a Boomer, Gen Xer, or Millennial? Join us for a discussion of the experiences and cultures of different generations of LGBT people. After reviewing some key terminology and answering your questions about being LGBT, we will look at generational differences around terminology, safety, willingness to self-disclose, and attitudes toward being LGBT. We will end with best practices for attracting staff and volunteers from different generations, as well as tips to ensure that your staff and volunteers (both LGBT and non-LGBT) are working well and communicating effectively across different generations.
