Education is one of the most important parts of IDAHOBIT, and in stamping out LGBTQIA+ discrimination, and in creating new LGBTQIA+ allies. If you're going rainbow and getting involved at work or school, adding LGBTQIA+ education, knowledge-sharing, or professional training is a great way of levelling up your activity. And in creating inclusion and allyship that continues year-round.

Here's how to do just that – no matter how big or small your event, classroom, cohort, or team is.

Online Professional Training

We're celebrating IDAHOBIT by taking Minus18's most-requested, most popular professional training online. Join us online on Friday May 14 for a live-streamed, interactive professional training event. It can be daunting to ask questions about LGBTQIA+ inclusion at work, but we'll equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to support LGBTQIA+ colleagues, clients and mates.

Online Teacher Training

We know first-hand what kind of an impact inclusive language, and visibly supportive teachers in the classroom can have. Spoiler alert: it's a huge impact. Join the Minus18 Education Team online for an interactive training event – especially designed for teachers, school staff and education professionals. Stand out against discrimination and bullying, support LGBTQIA+ students, and learn how to champion inclusivity every day.

Streamable Keynotes

We know how difficult it can be to get the whole team, or organisation, together in one spot. We also know how many teams are still working remotely, or who work in different cities. This one's for you. We've created a pre-recorded keynote, yours to purchase, stream, share and send as many times as you'd like – however you'd like. Seriously.

The keynote covers the importance of IDAHOBIT and allyship, along with some vital tips for being an LGBTQIA+ ally in the workplace (and in regular life!) year-round. Inspire the team in the way that suits YOU and your cohort.

Use it to educate yourself, your friends, your team – and to start important conversations. Don't forget to tag us (@minus18youth) if you take your activity or event online into the world of social media. We love seeing your photos and videos.
