Participants must register through the online registration form on the YWCA Events page (link in Website). This training will help participants define poverty and explore its causes and effects. We will review national and local data on the demographics of people living in poverty as well as risk factors that can make one more vulnerable to economic instability (such as race, gender and subjective social status). We will also explore the significance of the federal poverty line and social attitudes toward the poor and their implications for people living in poverty. This information will translate into implications for service providers who as result of this workshop will be better equipped to provide more responsive and relevant services, and have time to practice communication skills that are effective in working with people from all income backgrounds. Finally, we will explore and identify opportunities to join in advocacy efforts to end poverty.

Participants must register through the online registration form on the YWCA Events page (link in website URL). This workshop will develop a shared understanding of the meaning of sex assigned at birth, gender/identity, and sexual orientation. It will contribute to a more complex view of gender, beyond the traditional binary convention. Attendees will reflect on their own gender identity and associated experiences of oppression and /or privilege. They will also develop allyship/advocate skills with regard to both listening and reflecting appropriate language and cultural cues, as well as interrupting homophobic/cissexist language and behaviour.
