Professional development points
This free training aims to increase your understanding and support in the development of culturally appropriate services for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer (LGBTIQ) people.
This session is targeted at NWMPHN TPS and ISS providers who have limited knowledge and experience  working with members of the LGBTIQ community.

The session is a mix of interactive activities, discussion and tips delivered in a safe and non-judgmental environment by people who have lived LGBTIQ experience.

During 2011-2014, she served on the committee of Bisexual Allilance Victoria, and ran education sessions on bisexuality and joined TGV’s training team in 2014.  Kathi’s passion is ensuring that people are aware of the issues faced by people who are LGBTIQ and helping upskill allies and professionals to support people in this area.
