Here are four, of so-many-more-we-could-list, reasons. At an in-person training, you have the chance to…
- Meet other people in your community who are interested in learning more about gender and sexuality. While workshops and trainings are awesome they often are just the start of the conversation and it’s great to have folks you’re already connected to so you can continue those conversations.
- Ask questions in real time. We do our best in all our courses/materials to anticipate your questions but sometimes you need things explained differently and during in-person trainings you can get that!
- Hear other participant’s questions and reflections. Sometimes you don’t even know where you’re stuck or that you’re stuck at all. During in-person trainings it’s easy to learn just as much from other participants as it is from the educator.
- Practice talking about LGBTQ+ identities, gender, and sexuality. Lots of time we are attending trainings to prepare ourselves for future conversations or interactions we might have. In those cases, in-person trainings give us a chance to practice those interpersonal skills in ways that online trainings do not.
